This is a very busy and dynamic lesson plan consisting of teacher notes, Power Points, scripted lesson plans, thought provoking and discussion based questions, student handouts, party leaders, election results assignment, written assignment about who you would vote for and worksheets.
Some of the questions/topics it covers include:
- Electoral Process (representative democracy, secret ballot, periodic elections, fixed date elections, first past the post, riding, plurality, artificial majority, party solidarity)
- Voter apathy
- Minority vs majority government
- criteria for being a candidate in an election.
