Cary-Grove High School Rules

Task

Description

We have spent the past week studying Buddhism, Confucianism, Legalism, and Daoism.  Since you are now an expert on Eastern Belief Systems, Cary-Grove High School has decided to employ you as a consultant for the creation of new and improved school rules.  Your job will be to work with three other students to design rules applying your knowledge of Buddhism, Confucianism, Legalism, or Daoism.  You will design a poster for your list or rules.

Expectations

1.    Make sure that your rules include the following:

  • rules should be submitted on butcher block paper
  • at least ten rules in complete sentences
  • three rules which address student behavior
  • one rule which addresses faculty behavior
  • one rule which addresses the school facilities
  • one rule regarding studying
2.    Be prepared to present your rules to the class

Role

  • Tallest:  runner, gets supplies (butcher block paper, pens)
  • Shortest:  author, writes on butcher block paper
