Student Perspectives: Leslie Martin's Students
At the time these students were interviewed, they were ninth-graders at West Forsyth High School in Clemmons, North Carolina, which is a suburb of Winston-Salem. They were near the end of an honors-level two-semester course on U.S. government, civics, and economics, taught by Leslie Martin. The students discuss their experience creating a federal budget. First, they worked in cooperative-learning groups to develop a budget that reflected the priorities of the executive branch and later represented a Member of Congress in a Congressional budget hearing.
