Activity 7. Class Debriefs on Budget Process

Engage students in a discussion of what they learned from this experience. For homework, assign a two-page paper in which students respond to the following questions: What did they expect the activity to be like? What was different from what they expected? What did they learn? How did what they learned affect their perception of the budget process and how democracy works?
