During a modern constitutional convention, student representatives portray Radicals, Moderates, Conservatives, Minorities, and members of the Anti-President and Big State blocs, as they decide between the needs of their states and the ideologies of their political factions.
Proposed amendments on congressional age limitations, the seniority system, presidential and Supreme Court powers, and state political restructuring are followed by debate, political bargaining, and a debriefing essay and examination. The teacher’s guide contains reproducible materials including a democracy scale, Constitutional amendment summations and justifications, faction profiles, rules of procedure, proposal agenda and score sheet, ratification agenda and score sheet, individual score sheet, objective test, and debriefing and evaluation forms. Time: 15 hours.
