Many students and even adults don't realize how unlikely it is that campaign promises will actually be fulfilled. Have your students analyze the campaign promises of candidates running for election or politicians in office (present or past). Students will understand what is involved in actually acheiving these promises (i.e. how the branches of government must work together and compromise) and how long it can take.
This product is a Google Drive product, which means that you can edit the included organizers and post them on Password-Protected Learning Management Systems like Google Classroom and Edmodo for students to complete digitially. However, they can also be printed and used as handouts.
What is included?
1. A complete lesson plan with objectives, Bloom & DOK levels noted, materials needed, vocabulary/content to preview, instruction directions, and common student misconceptions.
2. Editable Promises Chart (graphic organizer) to analyze candidate(s) running for election and how realistic their promises really are and what would be involved in actually fulfilling these promises.
3. Editable Promises Fulfilled (graphic organizer) to analyze whether politicians, both present & past, fulfilled their campaign promises and what it took to do this.
4. Objective/Subjective Test Question Examples
Since I don't know what candidates/politicians you are using for this, the research is not included. This product only includes the graphic organizers you can use and some suggestions on how to structure test questions to asses your student's understand.
If you have any questions, please make sure you ask them prior to purchasing the product.
