Congress remains one of the least trusted institutions in the United States - some surveys even rank its members behind used car salesmen in terms of reliability.
This activity packet helps students understand the legislative process, as they take on the role of imaginary policy activists and craft a 'bill' they would like to see passed. From there they follow their bill through referral and markup to floor debate and beyond. Included with the step-by-step introduction, is a vocabulary list with relevant terms and organizations.
Ideal as an in-class activity, homework assignment or review sheet!
