      * NEW LESSON PLAN * CREATING A METAPHOR FOR THE THREE BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT

      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
      past participant presented a lesson entitled, "Creating a Metaphor for the
      Three Branches of Government."

      Students will create a metaphor poster that completes this comparison: "The
      three branches of government under the Constitution are like a..." They will
      also design and create an illustration for their metaphor, complete with a
      brief written explanation of why the metaphor is accurate. Each group’s
      metaphor must have the features listed in the lesson plan.
