How do you make interest groups interesting to high schoolers? Ask them to teach you about one that they are curious about!
Students will be asked to teach their peers, and print some kind of propaganda/information pamphlet that we will distribute to classmates! I give students some time to work in class on this.
This research can be done individually or with a partner.
You can set your own due dates and point values for this easy to implement mini-project! Let lobbying come to life!
For bonus, maybe they could make a commercial/video that conveys that interest group's ideas!
