The above question will be addressed to the whole class. The class should be divided into cooperative learning groups of four. There will be jobs within the groups as detailed earlier in the unit. Each student is responsible for a certain task. Children can choose with whom they’d like to work or the teacher can assign the groups. Each group is encouraged to establish at least two ideas on how to change laws or rules. Ask children if their method of change is appropriate or inappropriate; violent or non-violent. The instructor must remind students to reflect on the mock segregation exercise. Use a specific “law” from the mock segregation exercise and dismantle it. (It is suggested that the teacher carefully implement social development lessons on conflict resolution here [
Some engaging activities include dramatic role play and feigned letters to legislators.
Students will be assigned an independent writing activity. In some style, be it prose, verse, poetry, short story, or essay, students must share an unfair event in their lives. Beginning writers can “tell” their work to another, ( teacher or peer), who will act as a scribe.
