Legislative Branch Research/Reflection
Student Historians researched US House and Senate leadership and committee websites in both Houses of Congress today in class. A written reflective analysis on Schoology completed their work.
Students needed to understand the concepts of majority and minority parties, as well as the role the Vice President plays as President of the Senate in order to complete these activities. Many students wrote that they learned about the roles of the members of the Legislative Branch today and many were surprised by the work that is done in committees.
