JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: Vote on a song to sing as a class. If you can come to consensus (everyone agrees with enthusiasm) in less than three minutes, organize yourself as a choir, get someone to point a phone camera at it, and belt the song out at the top of your lungs. If you can't come to consensus in less than three minutes, today's tunes will not be vocalized.]
Reflect on the experience above. What factors facilitated and/or challenged the group's ability to come to agreement? Did leadership emerge? In what form-- was it an individual who took charge, a small group, or the power of an idea? Did you see any lessons for America's democracy in the process?
