Student Instructions

Your Family and Your Government

You will interview an adult family member and answer the following 3 questions. (You may want to audio record their answers) 1: What do you know about the government in Japan or the country you come from? 2: How has your life been impacted by the government's decisions? 3: If you could change something about that country's government, what would it be? You will need to summarize your interview. Each answer should be at least 2-3 sentences. Create a video or slideshow with the answers to the questions and upload them to Seesaw.

This has been adapted from Seesaw user Daniel Morrison to better suit a diverse population. The summative activity has also been changed. It is recommended that this activity be completed in 3-4 days to allow enough time for interviews and activity design.
