Model Legislature Curriculum
Focus Question/Lesson Description: 
This set of materials emerged from a collaboration between the University of California Berkeley History-Social Science Project and the YMCA of San Francisco. The strategies were developed through consultation with YMCA-SF Youth & Government lead advisors and the observation of delegation and state-wide meetings over the course of the 2013-2014 Youth & Government year. These materials, which focus on developing student questioning, speech making, and research and writing skills, could be adapted for many government classes, in particular.
