Debating my Favorite Topic this Year.
One of the most interesting things I think we have done all year would have to be the Topical Debates. While these were not always my strongest area, I ended up learning a lot more about current day issues, such as the controversy surrounding the upset of Proposition Eight (Which I still think is not a case of Judicial Tyranny, despite what the other side argued!).
I discovered how the Constitution relates to policies and laws, and how the courts address such possible violations to the laws. I may have no interest in becoming a political figure or a lawmaker, I believe it is good to know such things so you know why your government works the way it does. Now I know much more of just that. The debates aided that learning further, allowing me to see both sides of a legal issue using articles from the Constitution itself. I’m nearly old enough to be summoned for jury duty, even if I am exempt as long as I am in school, but at least this way I’ll know more about what I’m doing.
