JUVENILE NONFICTION / Social Science / Politics & Government

Called the Higher House of Congress, the US Senate is structured so that older, wiser state representatives hold office in it. The Founding Fathers wanted one part of Congress to have longer terms to take on bigger responsibilities and see them through. Similarly, students running for a leadership position in a school-wide organization need to have experience and vision. Readers explore the process of becoming a senator through the unique lens of wanting to obtain leadership themselves. Clear tie-ins to readers? campaigns engage them with the main content, including integral parts of the social studies curriculum.
