Today's blog entry calls for little reading, just discussion with an adult.
Discuss with them which government you're portraying in your Act-it-Out. What is the government, and how are you going to show it. You might mention who else is in your group and what roles they have.
After you're done talking about it for a couple minutes, write the following quote on a piece of scrap paper: "They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home..." Students, then have the adult you discussed the blog with sign the paper. (Adults, by signing the paper you're stating that you did indeed discuss the blog entry with the student that asked you to sign the paper.)
By the way, if anybody takes the time to look up that full quote, write it down, and tell me who said it, I'll give you added extra credit.
