Parliamentary Pastries: Learning Parliamentary Procedure through Cookies
Toupence, Rachelle H.
Schole: A Journal of Leisure Studies and Recreation Education, v23 p109-114 2008
Parliamentary procedure is an integral part of the business of many recreation organizations, but students often perceive it to be difficult and irrelevant to their professional preparation. The activity uses the creation of a cookie recipe to practice the basic meeting business functions in parliamentary procedure. The cookie meeting is an active learning approach that is suited to students with limited or no experience with parliamentary procedure. The format of the meeting simulation is addressed along with practical suggestions for implementation.
