    “In order to teach writing effectively, teachers must be writers themselves. They must experience the same uncertainty of starting a new draft and then struggling to revise. As they learn to move past the fear of failure, they discover the nervous rush and exhilaration of sharing work with an audience, just as their students do. Only by engaging in the real work of writing can teachers become part of the writing community they dream of creating for their students.” -Kate Messner

Teachers will experience the learning first hand, see a classroom government in action (with real students in a real classroom!), and have an opportunity to adapt the materials and create a personalized plan for their own students that meets the needs of their own schedule and classroom. Running a classroom government only takes up about an hour a week, and has virtually zero cost. By mid-year, the students´ understanding of how government works is remarkable. They haven´t simply memorized facts and definitions. They’ve lived it. They experience the frustrations of debating their opinions with a group, and lobbying members of other bodies to support a bill. They plan the details of classroom parties and experience the tax consequence of the ’services’ they vote for.
