Issues Close to Home

Young scholars brainstorm as a class about their role in the local government. In groups, they use various types of media to discover how it is affecting their lives. They choose one issue and state their position to share with the class. To end the lesson, they write a member of the Board of Supervisors about what can be done to solve the issue.
