Abstract
Studies show that many American students do not possess basic knowledge of the America judicial branch of government, one of three pillars upon which democracy rests. This project team is developing a prototype of the GoCivics Mock Trial, a multiplayer, augmented reality, role-playing game for use on tablet devices. Through the game, middle school students will take on a role in a virtual mock trial. The game will be played within the classroom to supplement social studies and civic outcomes related to the judicial system. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the software prototype functions as planned, the product can be used during class, and students are engaged by the prototype.
