As educators it is our job to provide our students with the information that will help them make informed choices rather than follow the herd. To help students better understand Congress this site offers links to its own lesson plans, to plans available on the Web, to WebQuests, Web sites about Congress, and much more. There are also links to a collection of political cartoons about Everett Dirksen, Senate Minority Leader from 1959 - 1969, to the landmark Civil Rights Act, and to a look at Congress during the tumultuous 1960s.
