This resource is perfect for teaching your U.S. Government students about the leaders and committees in Congress. It includes a 26-slide power point lecture, student CLOZE notes, a graphic organizer that displays the leadership structure, and a game that will help students to review and interact with the material about Congressional leaders. The notes cover topics such as: the key leaders of the House and Senate (Speaker, President of the Senate, Pro Tempore, Floor Leaders, Whips, Committee Chairs), the current officeholders of those positions (will be updated over the years), why Congress operates in committees, the descriptions and purpose of the various committees (standing, select, joint, conference), etc. Students can fill in a graphic organizer and CLOZE notes throughout the presentation that will help them to organize the information. In addition, the game, "Who Am I?" will provide a great activity to break up the information. Students will be given descriptions of a particular leadership position(s) and they must determine who(m) is being described. They can work individually or with partners and it provides a fun way to interact with the information they just learned. This resource is great for AP® or General U.S. Government classes and is editable to fit your curriculum!
