Student Perspectives: Matt Johnson's Students

At the time these students were interviewed they were seniors at Benjamin Banneker Senior High School in Washington, D.C., where they were enrolled in an AP Comparative Government course taught by Matt Johnson. The interviews were conducted in connection with their participation in a simulation in which students worked in cooperative groups to develop a constitution for a hypothetical country and then engaged in a full-class debate to determine what constitutional provisions they would adopt.
