Students in Shoreham-Wading River High School’s AP U.S. Government and Politics course had the opportunity to sit at the Resolute desk, a desk in the Oval Office used by several U.S. presidents, and engage in a Situation Room role-playing experience to fully understand what it means to be president at the White House Experience and Museum of Democracy at Long Island University in Brookville.

Organized by social studies teachers Mr. Walter Caskie and Mrs. Maria Lovasco, students not only toured the life-size replica of the White House, including the Oval Office, Press Briefing Room and Situation Room, but also navigated a “crisis” by playing the roles of the president and White House Cabinet. The Museum of Democracy exhibit, hosted at the Roosevelt House of Long Island University, contains hundreds of artifacts from presidential politics, ranging from George Washington’s time through the present day.
