3 Guided Practice
II.•In Activity #3, in which students read first-hand testimony about Joan, decide which selections the students will use. Prepare them for distribution. Nine sets of suggested excerpts are provided, divided into two groups. Excerpts from Joan's Condemnation Trial are shown first as that trial came first chronologically.
In classes without time to explore all of the excerpts, the testimony from the Nullification Trial—excerpts 5-10—trace Joan's story (albeit from the point of view of friends or supporters) from her childhood to her death. The excerpts from the Condemnation Trial, on the other hand, offer insight into the English attitude toward Joan. Another possible approach using some excerpts from both trials would be to assign the first three from each as companion pieces for comparing and contrasting.
