Degas Group Project #14
This lesson plan lasts for a week and is geared for high school students. The driving questions for this project are How does Congress Work? What cause Filibusters? What do Congressional Bodies say about a Representative Republic? We will split the classroom into two groups, "House" and "Senate". Legislative issues will then be given for the groups to debate and discuss. Each group will elect a representative (Speaker of the House-House, Vice President-Senate) to present their position the group has reached. If the stances are mutual, the bill is passed, if not they start over. Students will use iPads and laptops for research, and they may make a presentation that the leader will present.
