State Representative Jonathan Dever and State Senator Cecil Thomas visited Academy of Global Studies @ Winton Woods High School on March 20 to listen to presentations from students in Lauren Berens’ and David Traubert’s integrated 11th grade AP U.S. Government and English class. Student groups created a political party and gave persuasive campaign speeches to the congressmen and their classmates. Both Dever and Thomas will be returning before the end of the school year as part of the class’s next project, which is creating legislation.
