DISCUSSION QUESTIONS


  1. What are some rules at your school? Which rules do you (dis)agree with? Can you think of a new rule you would like to have at your school? Is there a rule you hate?
  2. What would happen if we didn't have rules, for example, at school? In society?
  3. What is your opinion on school uniforms?
  4. http://www.dumblaws.com/laws/united-states/alabama
  5. Do you think any of these laws are valid or justified?
  6. What rule would you like to make?
  7. Guys and Gals! What rules would you make for the opposite sex?
  8. Does everyone in society follow the same rules?
  9. What are some rules for driving? A sports event? A doctor’s office? Unwritten rules for a wedding? Meeting a person you like?

Consider at what age you think people should be able to:

  1. Get married
  2. Drink alcohol
  3. Vote
  4. Drive
  5. Smoke
  6. Join the army
  7. Leave school

Compare the above with what people are allowed to do in your country.

In the US people can get married at 16, vote at 18 and drink alcohol when they are 21. Do you think this makes sense? Discuss
