Road Commissioners and Petitioning for Change

Learners study the position of road commissioners in Maine and the process of bringing a referendum to vote. Students research this information for three Maine towns. Then they write a position paper which addresses some aspect of the road commissioner's job. As teams, the learners then choose a position they'd like to see changed , write a referendum, and explore ways of bringing it to vote.

I'm a science teacher assigned to teach an extra class in MATH. It's been great to get worksheets and ideas from other teachers who actually work in the field.
