In the past few weeks, in Julia Agnew’s language arts classes, we have been writing our own Declaration of Independence’s from Rex Kilburn, the principal of Los Alamos Middle School.
We have been looking at the Declaration of Independence, and this was an exercise to help us with understanding the Declaration, and how the people at the time felt.
When we finished writing our Declaration, we invited Kilburn to come and listen to our thoughts, and we gave him a royal seat and outfit to make him feel like King Kilburn.
In our Declarations, we stated the rules we felt should be changed and why. We also made a threat of what we would do if Kilburn did not change the rules.
