Mock Legislative Debates

January 25, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

In a series of mock legislative debates, students will research and work with legislators on controversial real-world issues.

Participating students will research controversial issues and submit papers that objectively address multiple sides of the dispute. Topics include free speech, prostitution, water conservation, welfare, eugenics and capital punishment.

Then students receive a proposed statute related to the issue, and they will take one side and engage in a partisan debate, either endorsing or opposing the bill. Prior to this Mock Legislative Debate, they will have received training from a former member of Florida’s congress.

The debates are open to the public and will take place April 13 and 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m and April 20 from 8 to 9 :45 a.m. The location of this program has not been announced.

Contact Chris Moser at (904) 826-8542 or Casey Welch at (904) 826-8544 for more information.

Sanford Meisner Method of Acting Workshop

September 24, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Joanna Horton-Liaou works with Freshman Learning Community students in the “Identity” cluster on the Sanford Meisner Method of Acting. These exercises allow the students to get to know their classmates and themselves better.

In this video, students participated in an exercise where they assigned a distinct movement to their names and the group repeats each name and movement. The string of names/movements builds until the entire group is represented.
