City Council Simulation: Dogwood City’s Proposed Curfew Ordinance
From The North Carolina Civic Education Consortium
“In this experiential activity, students will gain an understanding of the role of city councils, the responsibilities of council members, and the relevance of council decisions to individual citizens. Assuming the roles of city council members or special interest groups, students will participate in a city council simulation in which council members must decide whether to pass a curfew ordinance for the city’s young residents.”
