This bundle is everything you need to teach your students about the different influences of Congress and interest groups! Included is the following:
1) 15 slide power point with pictures. That covers the five influences of Congress ( Voters, President, Political Parties, Interest Groups, and PACs).
2) Fill in the blank notes that go along with the power point presentation. Fill in the blank notes are very helpful because students can be more focused on you and what you are saying versus trying to write everything that you are trying to say down!
3) Interest group research project. Students will pick a interest group and then see how much money they donate to congressmen, which bills they lobby for, and then research what the bills are about. There is also a screen grab explanation of where to find all of the websites that the students will use.
