SIMULATING CONGRESSIONAL ACTION IN THE CLASSROOM
During The Dirksen Center’s annual Congress in the Classroom® workshop — http://www.dirksencenter.org/print_programs_CongressClassroom.htm — participants are asked to introduce the lesson plans, resources, and techniques that have proven successful in teaching about Congress in their classrooms. A 2009 participant, Dennis J. Duffy, Libertyville High School, Libertyville, Illinois, presented a lesson entitled, Simulating Congressional Action in the Classroom.
After completing this lesson, students will have a practical understanding of the congressional system of committees and floor action. Students also will have engaged directly in informal negotiations with fellow student-legislators in order to get legislation passed.
