TAXATION WITH REPRESENTATION
The Politics of Economics
Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
In this standards-based simulation for economics or government classes, students draft tax bills, argue them in committees, and produce compromises between House and Senate.
Class members work together to learn firsthand how partisan politics affects tax legislation. Reproducible materials (teacher’s guide, student instructions, reading handouts, forms, assessment tools) come three-hole punched and shrink-wrapped. Time: flexible with four class periods suggested. Updated to include 110th Congress.
