BROADCAST DATE: TUESDAY, MAY 11, 2004
For two days, the Nation's Capitol will be turned into one of the largest classrooms in the country. Join Members of Congress, lobbyists, government officials, and your fellow students as we explore a national issue, discover the legislative process, and maneuver the forces that shape national policy.
This electronic field trip will convene in February 2004 at the grassroots level. Students in classrooms across the country will research the issue, solicit feeback from constituents, and define their position.
Day 1: Students will travel to Washington to testify before Members of Congress. You will strategize with issue lobbyists and electronically question witnesses.
Day 2: We will meet on Capitol Hill and engage in a live, spirited debate. Take a stand. Join in the crossfire. Defend your position.
