C=Combine How would the story change if the No-Name party and the Republican party joined forces?
We should create a spirit week!
Yes! We can even have a super hero day!
A=Adapt How would the story change if Mrs.Wyman didn't allow the Gang of Five to carry out the No-Name Party?
Don't listen to her!
M=Magnify How would the story change if there was five times the amount of minority kids at Paintbrush Falls Middle School?
Do you want to help us with the election?
The Gang of Five would of had a better shot at winning because they would have gotten the Republican votes and the No-Name votes. They also would have appealed to a larger group of people. They would have gotten two points of view to compare with and come up with the best decision. If they won, they would have made the student council the best it could be. This would have made a lasting impression that would be repeated throughout the years.
P=Put to other use What would happen if Addie used her excitement about creating a third part towards making one of the two main parties better?
The group wouldn't have realized that if they put their mind to something, they can accomplish it. The group wouldn't have changed the lives of kids who where constantly picked on. Bobby would not have gotten that boost of confidence from his speech at the election. Bobby and his dad would most likely not of had that conversation, which let Bobby realize that he can't disappoint his dad. Addie also wouldn't have met DuShawn.
E=Eliminate How would the story change if Addie wasn't in the story?
This election is so boring!
I know right? I'm glad we don't have to participate in it.
It would have been harder to get them to run on the Freedom Party. The more people there are, they more opinions you have to please. It also could have started a bigger argument between Addie and Tonni because there would have been more people to back Tonni up. There also wouldn't have been a need for the Freedom Party, in Addies eyes. The minority at the school wouldn't have been minority anymore.
R=Reverse What would of happened if Bobby acted like Mr.Kellerman?
Hey Bobby! I am going to watch your speech
No. You will embarrass me!
Addie would have skipped the speed bumps between her and her teacher and used that time for more efficient things. She also would have won more votes because people trust the parties that they know. It also could have changed the way we look at a certain party if we added her views. She still could have accomplished her goal by using the main parties. Addie could have partnered with Collin.
Republican Party Objective 1.Bring awareness to bullying 2.Make sure students have a voice 3. Make sure no one is afraid to express themselves.
If Addie wasn't in the story, the third party would not have existed. She made the Freedom Party go into place, which then led to the No-Name Party. The Gang of Five would still be called mean names because Addie was the one who started the third party idea. The group wouldn't have gotten involved in the election either. They also wouldn't have realized that they are not misfits.
Bobby probably wouldn't have the friends he has now. He may have started to hang to with the wrong crowd. Bobby also could have been a bully instead of being bullied. Mr.Kellerman was always miserable, that means Bobby would also be miserable. Bobby wouldn't have the connection that he has now with his dad.
