Mock Senate Spring 2009


Today the Government classes held their Mock Senate exercise in three different places around the campus. One of the sessions, featuring the students in Mr. DeNardo's classes, was held in the library.

It's always great to see the students dressed up like young ladies and gentlemen and taking part in this "exercise in democracy." The Mock Senate gives the students an opportunity to debate issues which the country is grappling with and they do it with a great deal of passion and enthusiasm.

Ian Kaufman talks to fellow Senators about changing the drinking age. Mr. DeNardo looks on in the background.

The students in all the government classes use the resources of the Library extensively in preparing for their debates and it show in the evidence that they present to their classmates.
