Our U.S. Congress
Discover the many facets of our 535 members and how they influence our daily lives. We will study the history of the institution and the current issues it faces. How is Congress different from the institution that was in place 200 years ago? Study the roles and responsibilities of our most “representative” branch, and learn the rules so you make a difference as you communicate with your representatives. Topics will include declaration of war, budget talks, confirmations, impeachment, and lobbying. Philosophical topics like “should representatives vote their conscience or abide by their constituency" may also be explored.
