Should driver's licenses be granted to unauthorized immigrants? That is the question class members grapple with in a lesson that asks them to first read a fact sheet that details the arguments for and against licensing unauthorized immigrants. Using this background information, groups then take on the role of task force members whose job it is to advise their governor to adopt one of six proposals about whether or not undocumented immigrants should be granted driver's licenses or another form of official ID.
