- Students first select and research a policy issue, then a corresponding interest group. Students write a 5- to 6-page proposal to their chosen interest group, suggesting which branch of government the interest group should attempt to influence and explaining why they believe that branch is the proper target for interest group activity. Using the policy objectives of the interest group, they analyze the powers and roles of each branch of government to determine which branch would be best to provide the policy solutions desired.
