Page 8 - Wednesday, January 30, 1980 Youth From Jefferson School By DENA GAMBETTA So many of the students as well as teachers and volunteers were absent during this past week, since so much flu has been going around. Do hope with this nice sunny weather that everyone will be feeling better, so that you will be back with us. When you aren't here we miss you. This past week the County Librarian and Research person came to visit our school, and particularly the library. We were privileged to have this fantastic person come to look over our library, and inform us of new books and printings available to help all students and teachers. The CSEA group met on Monday evening at Washington School at which lime James McAuley, our superintendent was our guest speaker. He spoke on school finances, and said it is dif- ficult to figure anything out for the coming year, as the legislators will probably not gel around to telling the schools how much funding they will get until next August or September, which in turn makes it difficult for the local board to make up their budget. So depending upon how nmeh the state gives to our district, we will see where cuts have to be made, if the amount is not up to last year. Last year, he quoted, the professional personnel had to be cut, and if there were to be cuts made this year it would have to be the. non- professional groups. Gus Zagorita's class is really into science this week. Each student in his class has chosen a partner, to discover sun energy. They take a metal frying pan, outside in ihe sun with a small piece of paper in it, and Ihen get a magnifying glass, and hold it over Ihe paper, with the sun shining on it. to show what the sun can do to create heat enough to set fire to the paper. We read about the sun's energy, we hear about it, bul it doesn't mean much until we experience it our- selves. Our prayers have been with Sharon Tuwnsend's son-in- law, who is critically ill, from a fail on his job. Sharon, all our good thoughts are with you ! On Thursday, Mario Michelon and Dick Johnson went to Sacramento to discuss the special programs in the district. "A child is a person who is going to carry on whal you have started. They are going to sit where you are sitting when you are gone, attend to those things which you think are important...lhe fate of humanity is in their hands."- Abraham Lincoln. Come Io your schools. See whal is going on. Get in- wflved. Be a volunteer. You'll look better, feel better, and make Jefferson School a belter place because you took the time to CARE. .00(g.0000gton School Reports, "We find the defendants..." By G. GUISSO During the week of January 21, the eighth grade Social Studies classes have created a drama in real life. Under their leacher's guidance, the students apply and act out freedoms contained in the Bill of Rights through roleplaying a realistic court trial. Prior to the courtroom drama, the students volun- larily chose roles they would portray. If they were wit- nesses, each received a description of new identities and were required to write their own depositions. The attorneys for both the prosecution and defense received each witness's depositions, a police and lab report from which to prepare their strategies. Courtroom personnel such as the bailiff, court clerk, court reporter were given job descriptions arid responsibilities. The judge's role is retained by the teacher, Mr. Giusso. Afler Ihe initial preparation, the jury was selected and its respon- sibililies given. The process of selecling a jury. challenges by attorneys, and restrictions on jury members during trial was discussed. So the Irial began, the students had to put them- selves into Iheir roles. In roleplaying, however, no one is told what to do or say word for word. Given their own personality profile, each person acts out their role spontaneously in the cour- troom. There is nothing to read from while you are roleplaying although you are given information beforehand. The steps in a court triad are covered one by one. For example, attorneys may object to the ofher's questioning tin proper legal mannerL a transcript of the Irial is taken, the jury deliberates the verdict in a "jm'y chamber" and judge decides points of law. The case was a "fictious" felony, a serious crime. Yet, it waspatterned alter sere wue slories. The sludents m he case can create in- formation to aide one side or the other, but it must follow certain rules and realism. One of the most valuable lessons of this real life drama is the degree to which, the rights of an accused person are protected by the Bill of Rights. And Ihat the Bill of Righls is not jusl a dusty, old historical document but contains the fundamental f,'eedoms and protections which make our country grea! and us free. tTo be toni inued Steve Connolly, C.II.S.
