Voices of Experience"Before I became acquainted with CongressLink, I did not comprehend the amount of material that one can receive on the Internet . . . In addition to the fact that students benefit greatly from CongressLink, the website is also a learning place for teachers" — Jennifer Mantlo, Teacher at Warren East High School in Bowling Green, Kentucky
"I teach senior American Government at the high school level, and this is by far the best site I have found for Congress lesson plans. My students have enjoyed each of the activities I have used from the Dirksen Center."
