Analyzing a School Dress Code in a Junior High School: A Set of Exercises.
East, Maurice A.; And Others
Five exercises based on a sample school dress code were designed from a political science perspective to help students develop skills in analyzing issues. The exercises are intended to be used in five or more class periods. In the first exercise, students read a sample dress code and name groups of people who might have opinions about it. In subsequent exercises, students are given a list of seven groups: students, parents, teachers, school administrators, school board members, clergy, and employers. They decide how each group would probably react to four sections of the dress code: length of students' hair, wearing of shoes, appropriate upper body clothing, and the use of face paint. The exercises help students recognize varying degrees of opinions and how opinions affect an issue. A survey dealing with the students' own dress code is included. (BY)
