Step Eight: Positions, Please!

Lesson Plan

Students summarize their research and their proposed solution in one coherent document that describes what the issue is, what’s being done, and how the proposed public policy will help solve the problem.

This resource was created with support from the National Association of Counties.


 The students will:

  • Summarize the problem and the research they have completed in earlier steps.
  • Describe their proposed solution using a 5W + H graphic organizer.
  • Analyze the benefits/limitations or the roles of various actors in the proposed regulation or action.
  • Predict the long-term effect of the proposed solution.
