Pretend You Are the Governor helps students explore the Essential Question, "Is it easy to be Governor?" by exploring the many duties in the "job description" of the Governor of the United States. Using a single day from the Lagos State government as an example, students break into small groups to role-play five governorship roles. Participants learn by working with documents, photographs, and artifacts associated with each role. During summary discussion, students discover the complexity of the state government as well as today.
A visit to the Museum galleries of the Tinubu Library reinforces student understanding of state handling of the government through examination of historical exhibits.
