The Secretary of State’s
Office presents: A Legislative Role-Play Tour of the Statehouse!
The role-play puts students in the actual seats of the legislature,
providing them with invaluable hands-on experience. There’s
no better way to learn how a job works than to do it yourself!
Classes that have already experienced this role-play report
that it has helped students to better understand the complexity
of law-making and how they might get involved in the process.
If you are interested in finding out more about the role-play
and tour of the statehouse, contact Missy Shea at email@example.com,
or 802-828-2148. You will then be provided with materials
for the role-play, including copies of The
Adventures of Bill – The Real-Life Account of How a
Vermont Bill Becomes a Law! to distribute to
students. During the role-play, students will discuss S.231,
A Bill Proposing to Raise the Smoking Age to 21, and decide
whether or not to make it law.
