Model Senate

Each year, up to 80 students from a number of Hockomock League Schools participate in “The Model Senate.” Model Senate is a two-day simulation of the U.S. Senate that takes place the week before April vacation. On the first day, students are placed into sub-committees to discuss and debate the quality of various student created bills. On the second day, all of the students take part in a simulation of the US Senate, as the 10-20 bills that made it out of committee from the previous day are put to the test. After each bill is debated using parliamentary procedure, everyone votes on whether or not to pass the bill. Some pass and become laws while others are voted down. The trip is an excellent learning experience, as students get a wonderful opportunity to debate and discuss some very important contemporary issues with their peers. We begin meeting in early February.
