Reforming Egypt's Constitution

In this in-class activity, students use their knowledge of democracy to offer recommendations to Egypt as it undergoes its constitutional revision debate.  The TF divides the class into small groups and has them come up with three constitutional reforms that they would recommend to Egypt.  They draw on the readings and the themes of the class.  They are instructed that they should be able to explain their reason for picking their particular recommendations.  Groups then share their ideas with the entire class, and this initiates a broader class discussion about democratic institutions.
