PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

***Example campaign commercial included.***

This fun and engaging project involves the whole class. Each of my Civics Class (at this time I only had 2) voted in a "primary election" to pick a person from each class to be their presidential candidate. Once the candidate was chosen, the whole class was split into committees (I let them pick their own committees). Each committee was responsible for a different part of the campaign.

Once the students got all their materials together, they dispersed and displayed them throughout the entire school. We then gathered in an assembly where the commercials for each classes candidate were shown and the candidates both gave their speeches.

The whole student body then took votes (we set up a makeshift voting booth) and voted on who they thought did the better job, was more convincing, or had a platform aligned to their beliefs. I then compiled this data as the "popular vote" and gave this to the "electoral college" which was the faculty and staff of the school. As in the real elections, the Electoral College voted based on the popular vote data.

After this project, I have each committee do a peer evaluation for each member of their group. I generally give the winning class all A's for their project (unless I know they didn't pull their weight by what I saw and by their peer feedback). The losing class got graded based on their work.
