1. How to incorporate an Agenda Setting Activity into the classroom
The information below provides participants with one method for incorporating the agenda
building activities into a class. The outline provides many of the key elements that can be
modified or changed to meet individual circumstances.
Part I
Class Time: 15- 30 minutes (or a single class session)
Students are divided into small groups of 3-6 students each
o Students discuss what they see as the most pressing issue(s) that would be
aided by a governmental and nongovernmental organizational response (policy,
law, or simply political attention).
o A series of questions can be used to start the process (students should first
answer questions on their own, then share their answers with group members.)
o Each small group should limit the number of issues to 3.
o A discussion of the importance of limiting their agenda to have an ability to
impact the political agenda by creating a focus and a viable coalition
Students write issues on chalk/white board to see each group’s issues.
Homework: discuss issues with family, friends, and neighbors. Find out what issues
they feel are important. Each student should find one article, (summarize the article in a
paragraph and bring this article and summary to share with group) on one issue they
wish to champion.
Part II
Class Time: 30 minutes to 60 minutes (if you wish to integrate lecture) (single class session
or can be broken up)
