The 2012 campaign season is in full swing, and presents a quintessential teachable moment in primary and secondary classrooms, including Social Studies, Math, Reading, Art, and Media Studies. Are you ready? Join Lesley Professor Jo-Anne Hart online as she presents ideas and resources for bringing the election to life in your classroom.
Teach your students to detect "spin"; have your students design surveys and interview questions; and help your class produce its own “Why Vote?” pamphlet to distribute. Make the election relevant to your students, and get your hands on activities built for student-centered engagement.
