Step Seven: Brainstorm a-Brewin'
Armed with knowledge about the chosen issue and about how public policy works from Steps One through Six, students brainstorm a public policy solution for the issue the class has been studying. Students use a “Thinking CAPS” method of organized brainstorming.
This resource was created with support from the National Association of Counties.
The students will:
- Work in a group to brainstorm solutions for the class problem.
- Evaluate potential effectiveness of ideas the class has brainstormed.
- Evaluate the ideas for cost and simplicity.
