Vehicle Fatalities in Delaware

Length: 1-3 Hours

Discipline: Public Policy

Level: Intermediate (majors)

Author: Sarzynski, Andrea

This week-long, group-based activity explores policy-relevant information on vehicle fatalities in the state of Delaware. Students are provided external resources and a series of questions that prompt them to review the provided information critically and form an assessment of the problem, its primary causes, and possible solutions to address the problem. Students must then communicate their problem statement and recommended solutions in a succinct memo to a key policy-maker: the Governor. Appropriate responses to the activity will require critical thinking, quantitative literacy, teamwork, and communication skills. This activity is designed for intermediate level undergraduates in public policy and related disciplines.
