Lesson Plan

No issue exists in a vacuum, so in this step, students examine the factors that contribute to the circumstances surrounding their issue. By looking at laws, regulations, policies, attitudes, and root causes--in addition to the effect of money, politics, and factors unique to the individual issue--students get a deeper understanding of their issue and its interplay with the world.
