Homeroom Class Scenario
Role card for eleven of the twelve students:
(All Members) You and the majority of your classmates have been together since the early years of elementary school. You were in the same homeroom in Grade 9 and have developed an identity that included winning the most points for a homeroom. You have achieved this distinction due to fundraising events and displaying school spirit through attendance at school events. You are looking forward to Grade 10 and hopefully you will still be in the same homeroom.
(Member A) In September you see that most of your Grade 9 homeroom is still together. You are also pleased to see that the class is only 20 students. You suggest that this class try to once again capture the top homeroom points for your grade. The rest of the class agrees and decides to plan for the years’ events at the next homeroom meeting in a weeks time.
(Members B and C) You and ten of your friends have just arrived in the school and you are all in the homeroom of Member A. You do not know many of the students in this room and you are a little uncomfortable because they have been together for so long. After a few weeks you feel more comfortable and decide you would like a say in the goals for this homeroom. You suggest that the homeroom not only work for homeroom points but should also try to get more equipment for the school such as computers and gym equipment.
(Member D) You like the idea of getting more equipment and suggest that the class cannot concentrate on both goals and should just concentrate on getting more equipment. You have the newer members of the class agreeing with your suggestion and you also see some of the original homeroom members nodding in agreement.
(Member E) You are one of the original homeroom members and you feel that these newcomers have changed the original goal of the class. After all, you feel it is up to the school and board to supply the equipment not a homeroom. You see school spirit as more important. You speak out strongly against the suggestion that the homeroom give up its goal of improving school spirit.
