AMS Major News

Wyatt Behringer '18

This summer Professor Kibler and I were awarded the Solomon Wank Memorial Peace and Human Rights Research Award. We conducted research on the recent history of U.S. immigration reform. The research was then used to write a simulation for college classrooms, which is centered on passing immigration legislation through the Senate. The goal of the simulation is to improve students' ability to form evidence-based arguments in both written and oral form. We hope the simulation will be highly informative and will give students the skills to engage with the national immigration debate.
