      * NEW LESSON PLAN * Noncompetitive Elections for Congress

      During The Dirksen Center's annual Congress in the Classroom® workshop -- http://www.dirksencenter.org/print_programs_CongressClassroom.htm -- participants are asked to introduce the lesson plans, resources, and techniques that have proven successful in teaching about Congress in their classrooms. A 2008 participant, Misty LeClerc, Wando High School, Mt. Pleasant, SC, presented a lesson entitled, "Noncompetitive Elections for Congress."

      American democracy faces a crisis - the crisis of noncompetitive elections. More and more, American elections consist of incumbents cruising to victory. In this lesson, students will be able to explain why congressional elections are noncompetitive, analyze the pros and cons of electing incumbents to Congress, and analyze the need for congressional term limits.
