Product Description
This activity is designed to allow students to experience the injustice of ‘taxation without representation’ that the colonists felt. Students will be told that because of financial cuts to the school budget, they will now be expected to pay for all photocopies they receive. After anger and outrage ensues, they will promptly be give a mock quiz, which they are expected to pay for (in theory, not really of course). After the teacher has shown this is an experiential exercise, students will further investigate the root of this idea, and the important role it played in the uprising of American colonists.
