E-Learning Module: The Dynamic Legislative Process | The Center On Congress at Indiana University - 2 views

    The typical textbook description of the legislative process, though technically valid in some respects, is woefully inadequate in describing the fascinating, vibrant, often "messy" reality of how a bill becomes law.

Students will move the chromosomes, narrate from a summary script that they have written for each phase, and then put the clips together to make the video. They love to watch and listen to their explanations, and the videos can be used as a review.
