Forest was invited to John Armbruster’s 7th grade civics class for his unit on local government. Forest was given the entire 45 minutes to present to each of the two classes. Forest had initially intended this to focus mostly on the history of CSP and effective participation in local government, but John Armbruster had given them the pro-frac sand mining side of the issue and expected Forest to take the counterpoint, so frac sand mining and fracking were a major component of the presentation. Most of the students seemed very engaged and some good questions were asked. Students were also paired off to debate one side, then the other, of the issue in an effort to keep them engaged and as a lesson in seeing all sides of an argument and how respectful debate is critical in functional local government.
