* NEW LESSON PLAN * THE SAGA OF THE MONEY TRAIL: DEVELOPING THE FEDERAL BUDGET

During The Dirksen Congressional Center's annual Congress in the ClassroomŪ 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 2005 participant, Lori Dumerer, R.L. Turner High School, Carrollton, TX, presented a lesson entitled, "The Saga of the Money Trail: Developing the Federal Budget."

In this lesson, students will trace the steps in the federal budget-making process. They will recognize the complexity involved in the budget process, including the competing demands for funds. Students will all analyze how compromise leads to the final budget.

Find "The Saga of the Money Trail: Developing the Federal Budget" at: http://www.congresslink.org/print_lp_federalbudget.htm.
