Redistricting: The Case of the Curious Gerrymander Part I and II

Do voters pick their elected officials or do the elected officials select their voters? This lesson introduces the concept of redistricting as vaguely defined by the Constitution and asks participants to assess the effectiveness of that definition in light of current Supreme Court cases and evidence from past elections. Students will interpret maps, look at data, and experiment with various redistricting options.
