The purpose of this simulation is for students to understand the process of how a bill becomes a law by portraying members of the House of Representatives. Students will analyze current proposed legislation (H.R. 586), not from their perspective, but from the perspectives of the members of the House of Representatives. Additionally, some students will have the opportunity to portray witnesses from interest groups who are for or against the proposed legislation. This simulation is aligned with common core standards and includes a teacher guide, rubrics, and graphic organizers. Please note that this simulation can be tailored to any proposed legislation.
