Incumbency Effect Lesson Presentation Close-Reading
The topic presented in this presentation is of significant value when we consider that every two years 435 seats are up for grab but incumbents have over a 90% re-election rate. That is a remarkable statistic and one that should be explored.
In this presentation, I have included a over 20 slides that cover every element of the incumbency effect as well as meshed it with several news articles that show explicable proof that the trends are indeed factual.
I have also include two full news articles that are referenced along with a short reading activity for students to complete either as a class discussion or posted for them to complete outside of class.
I hope you enjoy!
