Hi, everyone! Sorry to be away today, but I think you will enjoy the new unit we will begin in my absence! We will be piloting an online economics course that is a simulation. It plays like a game! You make choices that lead to consequences and force you to understand situations in order to succeed. Sounds kinda like becoming an effective citizen, huh? Today I would like you to register at the link below and work you way through the first two lessons, "Welcome Mayor" and "Smart Shopping." I can see your responses and how you perform the tasks, so do your best! I am going through the course just like you, and it is fun!

 

Here are the class codes to use for your SS classes. Copy and paste the appropriate class code in when prompted. Use the "Everfi Registration" link below to get started. Enjoy.

Is that different from the way other governments work?

Skit #1: Order and Security Roles: Friend #1 Friend #2 Robber Officer Summary: Two friends are attacked by a robber on the street. After searching for half an hour, they finally find a police officer. The police officer doesn’t know how to help them. Even when the officer catches the robber, there is no jail where the officer can keep the robber, and the officer does not have the skills to figure out what is going on. The officer suggests the injured friend seek justice through a local council instead of in the court system.

 

Skit #2: Legitimacy Roles: Builder Friend #1 Friend #2 Friend #3 Summary: One person is building a house while a friend sits and reads the newspaper. When another friend arrives and questions whether the roof looks legal, the builder laughs at the laws that are in place. The laws were borrowed from a different country and do not make sense in this country. But the lawmakers don’t care what the citizens need and aren’t interested in listening. A third friend arrives, who is breaking the law with his smelly car. But the law is stupid and impossible to follow, so why try?

 

Skit #3: Checks and Balances Roles: President Legislator #1 Legislator #2 Legislator #3 Summary: The President’s friend wants a new law that will help his business make more money. The President asks the legislature to pass the law. He assures the legislators that Bob Smith will reward them for their cooperation. Nobody is worried that the law won’t hold up because the court system is too disorganized. Even if someone does take the law to court, the President or the legislators can just bribe the judges.

 

Skit #4: Equal Application of the Law Roles: Judge Thief Officer Town Mayor Summary: After sentencing a thief to five years of hard labor for stealing potatoes at the market, the judge finds the town mayor waiting in his office. The mayor had a problem at the market, too. He lost his temper with a vendor because of the vendor’s high prices. The mayor broke things in the vendor’s shop and broke the vendor’s arm. Because of the mayor’s position, the judge agrees to overlook the offense.

 

Skit #5: Procedural Fairness Roles: Jail Guard Prisoner #1 Prisoner #2 Prisoner #3 Summary: Three prisoners end up sharing the same cell. One prisoner has been in prison for two years without being told why and without ever seeing a judge. Another prisoner is taken to court after spending only a short time in jail. There is no clear reason why that prisoner gets to go to court when the other one did not. A third prisoner has been jailed for not being able to pay the court fee. The court fee is decided by the judge on a case-by-case basis. 

 

Skit #6: Access to Justice Roles: Tamara (woman with a problem) Robert (Tamara’s male friend) Angela (Tamara’s female neighbor) Court Clerk Man (Files a case in court) Summary: Tamara wants to take a man to court for refusing to stop farming her land, but the local court is almost always closed. The nearest court is in the capital city, but Tamara can’t afford to travel that far. When the local court opens for a day, Tamara thinks she’ll be able to file her case. But women are not treated the same as men, and as a woman, Tamara did not get enough schooling to be able to read the forms. Without access to justice, Tamara has no way to enforce her rights.
