This school year I’m teaching one block at 9th grade Civics. To introduce our unit on “What is Government?”, I quickly made this video the other night on a whim. My intentions for this video were simple:
- Ask students what they thought government is, what it does, and what types of images in conjures up before they watch the video.
- Give them a quick glance at what are different elements of government.
- Make the video as cheesy and ridiculous as possible.
I think I achieved my three goals. At least the third one.
