The Simulated Congressional Hearing 
is the culminating activity for the We the People
program. The entire class, working in cooperative teams, prepares and presents statements before a panel of
community representatives acting as a congressional committee. Students then answer follow-up questions
posed by the committee members. The format provides students an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge
and understanding of constitutional principles while providing teachers with an excellent means of evaluation.
