Product Description
Build a sense of free speech, democracy, and citizenship in your students with this ballot measure initiative research and debate, mock election, and letter to the editor mini-unit. There’s lots of flexibility to tailor to your local election, students’ interests, and your time constraints.


************************************

Greatness is participating as an informed member of one’s representative democracy.

Nothing is more real, more current, or more urgent than preparing your students to be citizens during an election, regardless if they are 18 or not, regardless if it is a big election year or not.

Leave the boring government textbook behind and take your students straight to the real world with voter material research, kinesthetic civil debate, a formal mock election, and crafting and submitting real letters to the editor.
