Hon. Kent Hehr has, for the past seven years, made an effort to speak to Grade 6 students during their democracy unit. In a step-by-step program, the Member of Parliament works with the students as they discuss what they need to think about when they make decisions as a community. It is a non-partisan look at decision making that includes the students and actively engages with them, and fits well within a 45 minute program.
If you, or a teacher you know, is interested in Hon. Hehr presenting to a class please contact Jamie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
