• Field Trip to the Parliamant

    A wonderful field trip of WAT Grade 4 students to the Plenary Session of the Parliament of Albania - part of the Unit of Inquiry "How We Organize Ourselves". As opposition and majority parties got into a deadlock during the session, students had a chance to experience closely the lively interaction of MP's and how they act and debate in parliament based on their strong political convictions and beliefs. This was an excellent live introduction to how the government and parliament function and how laws are debated and made or not made. This session illustrated clearly how people organize themselves into groups around an idea, and how their action/inaction affects the community and its well-being.
