About This Lesson

This lesson offers students the opportunity to take the role of voters with special interests. Students draw up initiatives for new school or classroom rules. Working in groups of four or five, students share their ideas and rationale for new rules. Students listen to other students’ interests, provide justifications for new rules, and reach a consensus by majority vote. Each group submits its priority initiative for ballot consideration. Schedule this lesson to give students sufficient time to discuss their initiatives before the simulated election. CCSS: RH.6-8.3 CM_LP
