Shortly thereafter, my students decided that they would like to wear the crown on their birthdays.Then, one student put forth a motion about what they named "Crown Day" and the rest of the class took turns amending the motion. Several revisions and lots of conversations later, my class drafted and voted on our first class law. This process took place during our social studies class and in between a fire drill.
It was a great experience in parliamentary procedure.
Here's our class resolution.
I am really hoping that someone else chooses to put forth a motion, soon.
Democracy in action.
That's what it's all about.
