Federal Government


Students will determine the name of their United States representative or United States senator and select a committee on which that person serves. They will write a letter or call the local office and inquire as to the responsibilities of that committee and the role of their representative/senator. Students will research biographical data (family background, education, previous jobs, political experience, and accomplishments) of one United States representative and one United States senator. They will compile the information on a T-chart and then compare their political rise to power.
