Today is “Australia Day.” It marks the date that Australia was first settled in 1788. Captain Arthur Phillip guided a fleet of 11 British ships carrying criminals to the colony of New South Wales. That’s right, it was originally intended to serve as a sort of jail. Why do you think they would use Australia for this? List any facts you know about Australia
Each year, 500 names were drawn from all the citizens of Athens. Those 500 citizens had to serve for one year as the law makers of ancient Athens.
All citizens of Athens were required to vote on any new law that this body of 500 citizens created. One man, one vote, majority ruled. Women, children, and slaves were not citizens, and thus could not vote.
Students are frustrated because there are so many disruptions in class. They recognize that their behavior is in their own power and therefore that they can change that. As a group they meet to decide on rules to help them. They debate for hours until they finally all agree on three rules.
As a class we agree to the following:
Come to class prepared with all materials and put them on your desk before the bell rings
Sit quietly and raise your hand if there are any questions or concerns
Be respectful to your fellow classmates (no distracting, talking, physical contact etc.)
Of course none of the girls were invited to this meeting however because they are not given the privilege of voting!
Students don’t feel that their voice is being heard regarding activities and privileges around the school. Students elect 1 representative from each class, 1 student body principal, and 1 student body vice principal to represent them.
These elected officials schedule a meeting to discuss the wants of the students. Students are instructed to place suggestions in a box, from these suggestions the representatives the deliberate and decide to change two rules and add one.
