*2020 Essay Contest Re-Imagined*
Sadly, we were unable to do our traditional essay contest for 2020. Instead we offered a resource that could be used to let students learn on their time and in their own space. It’s designed to keep students involved in instruction and learning, by piquing their curiosity about the government that’s closest to the people. This assignment can easily be shared with students via this link or printed out for pick up.
The exercises will require reading and comprehension skills, creative and persuasive writing and mapping/drawing.
We hope students find this a fun way to learn about government.
