Rome:Conflict of Orders: Plebeians Vs. Patricians
STORY TIME…. Be CREATIVE
YOU as 9th GRADERS MAKE UP much of the population at Bethel High School- and you all work very hard for your grades
The rest of the school does nothing and earns A’s , while the highest grade you can earn is a D+. But… that’s not your only problem as a freshman….
Unlike the rest of the school, you are not allowed to:
Hold public office, or have a voice in decisions
Know the rules of the school/community- but you would get punished for not adhering to them
Date anyone outside of the freshman class
Go to events that the 10th , 11th, or 12th grade attends
Get out of the 9th grade… your stuck!!!!!
How would that make you feel?
What are you going to do (if anything) to change this and get more rights?
Write a letter of your grievances (showing your emotions) to anyone of your choice. Be sure to include a solution to this problem. If you don’t get what you want, what will you do? (you CANNOT Quit)
Write a general posting/ mission statement to be places in the center lobby of BHS. Be sure to show your grievances and a solution.
