Working with a partner, choose something that you feel
should be prohibited, or banned, from either school or society
in general. Keep in mind that what you choose to prohibit
should create some type of problem. In the 1920's, the 18th
amendment prohibiting the sale and consumption of alcohol
was passed because many people felt that alcohol was the
cause of many problems in society.
The law you are proposing should include:
- What you are outlawing
- Why you feel it should be outlawed
- What the positive results would be if your law were
- A list of people who you think might oppose the law
and you think they would oppose it.
Once you have finished drafting your law, create a poster
with your partner that includes the major points of the
law and why you think it should be passed.
You and your partner will present the poster to the class,
and then the class will vote on each law.
