The Illegal Immigration Debate in the US
This is a Project-Based Learning style project. It is the students' first of the year, so they do not have prior experience with this format. This project's primary aim is to introduce the format and teach three skills: collaboration, critical thinking, and collaboration. Secondary skills include professionalism, technology skills, and writing. The end product - the interview with Senator Hutchison - was obtained by calling the Senators' offices several times. Every office would have sent letters back to each students, but only hers was willing to participate in a real interview.
