The Scottsboro Trials

T​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍​o achieve this goal, you should select one or two (no more) of the questions presented at the end of each case study under the heading, “Thinking Critically About This Case.” You should explicitly identify the question(s) you have chosen to answer in your paper. Only a small portion of the essay should be devoted to a restatement of the facts of the case: the large percentage of the case study should be analysis not mere regurgitation of the facts of the case. In writing these essays, you must incorporate the class lectures and cite/footnote the fol​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍​lowing materials: (1) the textbook chapter; (2) the case study; and (3) five academically rigorous outside sources addressing the issues and context of the case study (and not restatement of the facts of the case). Again, the five outside sources should not merely be summaries of the facts of the case but should explore the underlying issues that the case study and chapter explore.
