$$$ IS SPEECH
Citizens United v. FEC
Becoming Congress, students write campaign finance legislation; in an election focused on the issue of money in politics, students role-play candidates, speech writers, pollsters, and the media; in moot court, students work through an appeal of the Citizens United case; and succinct but substantive preparation materials equip the class for an official tournament-style debate. Includes assessment rubrics and standards. Time: flexible.
