Engaging Congress is a game that uses primary source documents, photographs, political cartoons, maps, and other items to explore the challenges of sustaining representative democracy in our complex and diverse nation today.
Engaging Congress content is divided into five thematic stories:
- More Equal Than Others (Influencing the Political Process) - Laws and Sausages (Separation of Powers) - Vote Early, Vote Often (Voting Rights) - A Balancing Act (The Federal Budget) - Fair is not Always Equal (Federalism and States' Rights)
The accompanying Engaging Congress website (engagingcongress.org) contains many additional resources including:
- The Teacher Toolbox - Curriculum Guide - Correlation of content with Social Studies standards - Bank of multiple-choice and discussion assessment questions - Links to Library of Congress primary source analysis guides - Downloadable PDFs and PNGs of all primary source documents - And more.
