4th Annual City Hall Project

For the past two weeks, students have been taking on real life issues in a classroom environment.
The 4th annual City Hall Project challenged students in Mr. Macioci’s Civil Society class to play the roles of mayor and city councilmen trying to find resolutions to challenges surrounding town budgets. Students were also able to pose hard questions to town officials just as one would in a real time town meeting. Visiting faculty joined in the roleplaying taking on positions of citizens from all walks of life.
