“It belongs to us, and whether it is mean or majestic; whether arrayed in glory or covered with shame, we cannot but share its character and its destiny.” *
LegSim is just a piece of technology. Your instructor has assigned it to provide an opportunity for you and your colleagues to play an active role in the course.
Research shows that students learn more when they take advantage of the opportunities simulations afford.
The success of your simulation depends ENTIRELY on you and your colleagues. It’s your opportunity to play politics. Take some personal risks and you will probably have a learning experience you won’t soon forget!
*The quote is from abolitionist Frederick Douglass (speaking of the US Congress in 1892)
