Activity 6. Groups Present Revised Budgets to Congress
Advise students that these presentations will be done somewhat differently from the first speeches. Choose one or two groups to present the President’s point of view and direct the other students to take on Congressional roles. During the post-presentation discussion, students get a chance to role-play some of the adversarial aspects of the relationship between the President and Congress, and also to try to reach consensus.
