Where’s the Heart of Florida?

Should the capital of the state of Florida remain where it is in the 21st century? Would another location better represent the “heart of Florida?” In this Problem-Based Learning (PBL) unit, students engage in an authentic setting to research the history of the current state capital and examine the possibility of a new location for the state capital that perhaps better reflects the changing face of Florida, politically, economically, culturally, socially, and geographically. Charged by the governor in this simulation, students act as a task force to inquire and propose possible sites as the “heart of Florida” capital of the twenty-first century according to the stated criteria.
