Model Senate DebriefCircle up! Let’s talk about last night.
Option 1: Reality TV Confessional- Go into the confessional booth by the bookshelves. Video a 2-4 minute confessional style reflection on Model Senate. Talk to the camera! Here are some things you could talk about:
Option 2: Audio Interview
Find a friend/partner. Find a quiet place. Use your phone to record a 2-4 minute audio interview (2-4 minutes of interview EACH). Questions could include:
DP Update: DPs are due by MIDNIGHT ON SUNDAY. I will be checking them early on Monday morning. Have them DONE.On your DP, you need to have:
HOMEWORK: Finish your DP Updating. DUE: Midnight on Sunday.
DIRECTIONS TO NOBLE HALL: Click on the link, and scroll to the second page for directions!
TIMES: Be there (so leave yourself ample time to park and find it) at 4:50. This should give you time to put together your placard, and grab your stuff out of the exhibition box.
If you are on my executive team (Executive, Maj/Min Leaders, Chairs, Ranking Members, Whips, Secretaries), OR you have stuff in your car, be there by 4:30 ready to unload and set up!
I am so proud of all the hard work you have done- you guys are going to kill it tonight.
A Word from your teacher...So, not my kid this time. I was up all night with food poisoning, and thought I could make it to school this morning. This turned out NOT to be the case. Given that you would probably prefer not to be vomited on (if this isn't the case, I don't want to hear about it), I'm staying home today. It's a terrible day for me to be home, so please take some of my stress about this away, and do EVERYTHING on the list below. I'll be available via email periodically throughout the day.
Placards: How to Make a Placard
Make your placards- these MUST be done for Monday's portion of our exhibition. Everyone needs one! There is white cardstock on my desk that you should use for this. You are welcome to use my printer.
Lobbyists and Experts- you should have two placards. One for your senator role, and one for your lobbyist/expert role. If you want to get all fancy with it, you could put your different roles on different sides of the triangle.
Parly Pro Starter
Complete Parly Pro Starter run by Committee Chairs.
Speech Peer Critiques
Trade speeches with another senator, lobbyist, or expert. Do the peer critique form. Then, sign up for a conference with Lori about your speech!
Get your speech revised and complete. The finished version is due at the end of class tomorrow. We will be practicing speeches in class tomorrow, so you should have a version that is very close to done when you walk in the door.
Work on speech!
Starter: Run class using Parly Pro to get questions answered about Model Senate. IF YOU WERE ABSENT, you need to go to the Docs page and get the Parliamentary Procedure Rules handout.
Docket Study: Use the linked handout to annotate and coach the docket of bills we'll be tackling for model senate. You need to make sure that you have really read and understand each bill deeply. You will likely need to do additional research in order to effectively critique the bills.
Speech Outlining and Additional Research
Start outlining your speech, and do any additional research you need to do in order to effectively understand and critique the bill.
