Student Handout A


You will find two reflective questions below. Divide the class into two teams. Each team develops answers to one assigned question, either Question #1 or Question #2.

Question #1: Why have a Florida Constitution?

We have a United States Constitution. Isn't that enough?

(Note: Emphasize a comparison of state and federal constitutions, their purposes and their differences.)

Question #2: Why change the Florida Constitution?

The Legislature makes new laws and discards unneeded laws each year, isn't that enough updating?

(Note: Analyze the need for review and renewal of state government institutions, documents, and processes.)
