I like the inclusion of novelty into the lesson play.  This will help make the lesson interesting for those that might not be engaged quickly.  It's not real clear on what format the policy should be written. I see the different resources that can be leveraged but not real sure if these are resource used for research and/or if these are the options the student has to display the policy information they have researched.

I think that your lesson was well thought out; I like the motivation especially with the daily show clip. I'm not sure which clip your referring too, but it would likely be funny and I always found that humor helps me remember and enjoy learning. As far as constructive criticism, I only could think of maybe allowing this to be a group project, which would expand the teaching methods and maybe activate another style of learning without really taking anything away from the lesson. Over all it seems solid to me.
