Hi! I was finding public policy hard to teach, so I researched a few issues that appear to be important to the United States as a whole. On day one, students will read a statement about the following 4 issues: Clean Water, Bees, Solar Energy, and Global Warming. They will write a paragraph about the issue that interests them most. Next, print off the four articles that were written after reading a variety of resources including: http://www.environmentmichigan.org/issues
Students will read the articles and write about how they think their issue should be solved. They will also brainstorm ways to take action.
