Being of the Tribunal/ Jury for this case is very important. As part of your ability to make a decision based on the evidence that will be presented in court, you are also tasked with conducting your own research as well.
Although the verdict that you and your fellow Jury members may come to, will not necessarily reflect your feelings on the dropping of the two Atomic Bombs on Japan.
In class you will look at two perspectives, one in favor (blue handout) of the bombings and the other against (orange handout). You will also be asked to use the website linked below to help gather information and form your opinion.
Your main grade for this Trial comes from writing your opinion on the use of the Atomic Bomb, was it the right thing to do? Your assignment will be in Google Classroom, please make sure your first and last name are in the title.
