Product Description
Teach the election process while incorporating essential reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills!

One of the best ways to teach students the election process is to actually hold an election. However, I always disliked the way class elections would easily turn into popularity contest and hurt feelings. This is why I created the Book Character Class Election project. You can hold a simple mock election while at the same time practicing reading for detail, character traits, and writing with support. Plus, the speech is a great way to incorporate speaking and listening skills. With this project, students will explore characteristics of a good leader, choose a book character who demonstrates good leadership skills, and campaign for president as that character. In addition, students will explore challenging election concepts such as the electoral college, primary parties, and campaign advertising.

-sample schedule
