The 2016 Presidential Election has been full of interesting drama and this product gives you a creative way to engage your students in the upcoming election. Now is the perfect time to challenge your students to create their own movie plot, script, poster, and trailer based on the current presidential election. Students create a storyline about the election based off facts, research and primary sources involving the current events in the election. My students loved this assignment and they became more knowledgeable about the candidates in the election. Take students to the top of bloom's and use the current election to get your students interested in politics. You may want to meet up with digital multi-media classes to make this a cross-curricular project. This product was created so that you could use for past elections and/or state and local elections (with minor adaptations).
