I am Going To Write A Letter To My Congressman.
As we continue to discuss the concept of citizenship in regards to the Navy JROTC program goal to "develop informed and responsible citizens", it is important to learn the value of communicating with our elected officials. The majority of you aren't of age to be registered voters. There is no reason you can't develop the ability and the habit to contact your elected representatives at the local, state, and federal level.
Coupled with our recent focus on the international situation in the Ukraine and the aggressive involvement of Russia, we are going to craft a group letter to our Senator, Senator Blumenthal.
1. Two designated Group Leaders will open a Google Document and share editing privileges with the members of their group.
2. The class was divided into groups. Each group was divided into a Ukrainian perspective group and a Russian perspective group. Each of these two groups will draft a summary paragraph and provide the hard copy to the group leader.
3. Each group will craft a online letter to Senator Blumenthal which I will review and we will mail to the Senator. I am certain we will get a response of some kind.
