  • Upper School Special Interest Groups
To wrap up their unit on Congress, the upper school government class created their own special interest groups (SIG) to support a cause or address an issue that interests them.
Interest groups typically use an acronym for their name – for example, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, or MADD. The students were to pick two Congressional Committees that would specifically “lobby” to support the interest group. Research and data was needed to support their cause during presentations.

Attached is an example of one project. The example focuses on the interest groups Names/Acronyms, Logos, Mission Statements/Purpose, and Data research.

Well done, upper school!
