Sample High School Hearing Video

divide bThe Simulated Congressional Hearing provides students an opportunity to demonstrate their
knowledge and understanding of constitutional principles and ideas while providing teachers an excellent
means of assessing student learning. The entire class, working in cooperative teams, prepares and presents
four minute statements before a panel of community representatives acting as a congressional committee.
Students then answer follow-up questions posed by the committee members.
