First degree murder is usually part of a larger scheme, done by poison, done after lying in wait and/or planned. It often involves weapons (especially guns). Often in conjunction with burglary, arson, serial murders and other felonies. </p><p> Insanity Mental illness or psychosis which causes the person to lose touch with reality. There can be a claim of temporary insanity or simply the argument of prolonged mental illness. Must be of a severe nature to be counted as a plea of insanity. </p><p> Arguments Textual Evidence* </p><p>First Degree </p><p>1. 2. 3. </p><p>1. 2. 3. </p><p>Insanity </p><p>1. 2. 3. </p><p>1. 2. 3. </p><p>*Use page references and quote. </p></li><li><p>Terms Youll Need to Know </p><p>First-degree murder- A killing which is deliberate and premeditated </p><p>(planned, after lying in wait, by poison or as part of a scheme), in </p><p>conjunction with felonies such as burglary, arson, or involving </p><p>multiple deaths or certain weapons, particularly a gun. </p><p>Insanity - Mental illness of such a severe nature that a person cannot </p><p>distinguish fantasy from reality, cannot conduct her/his affairs due to </p><p>psychosis, or is subject to uncontrollable impulsive behavior. In </p><p>criminal cases, a plea of "not guilty by reason of insanity" will </p><p>require a trial on the issue of the defendant's insanity (or sanity) at the </p><p>time the crime was committed. In these cases the defendant usually </p><p>claims "temporary insanity." </p><p>Defense: The group who will be fighting on behalf of the narrator. They </p><p>will plead insanity. </p><p>Prosecution: The group fighting on behalf of the old man. They will be </p><p>accusing the narrator of committing first degree murder. </p><p>Judge: The judge mediates the discussion and calls upon the defense and </p><p>prosecution to speak. </p><p>Jury: Those that will decide the verdict. </p></li><li><p>Name: Core: Date: </p><p>T-TH: Choose ONE of the THREE Directions: Based on your preferred learning preference, select one of the assignment options below to </p><p>complete for todays assignment.

List </p><p>which musical accompaniment (song or sounds) should be included and </p><p>what props you would need to make the setting/mood complete. </p><p> Linguistic option: Write arguments for a murder trail of the main character. </p><p>You will take the point of view of the prosecution and will need to CITE </p><p>examples from the text (quote and page number) to back up your </p><p>arguments.
