Stuff to do:
* Group together, come up with and present/act out the fictional government of a fictional country (primitive, futuristic, dystopian, bizarre, etc.)
* Watch and place together the local and foreign effects of the film's version of our government (like "Watchmen" or "Captain America" or something. I can bring the movie :D)
* Group together and make posters presenting Pokemon representing different government/Economic aspects (Congress, President, Bureaucracy, Lobbyists, etc.) to show to next year's students.
When in a situation (life situation), I wish to know how to either get out of the situation, if I need to solve the situation, and how can I avoid it the next time around?.
When it comes to life skills - there's a lot I don't know. Even though Home Ec is notorious for being a "blowoff class" or "worthless", I feel that when done with a good teacher (and perhaps some more worthwhile tasks) it can be a valuable class.
Everyone needs to know how to do things that happen in emergencies, or tasks with instances such as money and bills. I would have loved to learn how to do things like:
-balance a checkbook
-change a tire/oil
-learn the basics about a car
-how to bake/cook, or some basics for cooking on your own
-how to sew/iron
-how to manage money as a college student
-how to build a fire
-how to hunt
-drive a stick shift
-how to get a job
-and handle the interview
-use basic tools
-navigate a map/use a compass
-wash/clean a house/clothes
Basic tasks that are useful, but unfortunately most people don't learn how to do. It's not only useful for college, but even in dire emergencies, Life skills that, as society progresses, go unnoticed - yet not unwarranted.
