Congressional Leadership Research

Students will be researching the leaders of the House and Senate in class tomorrow. It is very important for those of us living in America to know who the high-ranking members of the Legislative Branch are. The committees of both houses are also note-worthy and students will be investigating those, as well.

My students and I have discussed Congress quite a bit lately and they are aware of the looming "fiscal cliff". I feel that this research will help students better understand the role this branch of government plays in America today and will help them to recognize the political leaders they see on the internet and television.
