Writing Your Own Declaration of Independence
Students were asked to work in small groups and decide what they would like independence from. I stole some resources I found online. I suggest taking their ideas seriously if you can, we got a lot more buy-in. For example, our students declared independence from homework, and we are giving them biweekly quizzes instead of HW. Another group declared independence from school lunches and invited our administration to their presentations. School lunches is now a project that the same group is working on with help from our administration. Good luck! :)
