Product Description
Prepare for an upcoming election with this project to get students thinking fairly and critically about an issue or topic.

In this project, students will…
• Get in small groups and pick a topic or ballot issue
• Complete informative research with credible sources, cited facts, and paraphrases
• Analyze the persuasive techniques/appeals being used by both sides of the issue (including ethos, pathos, and logos)
• Pick from a list of 25 extension questions to answer
• Present their research findings to the class (while the audience takes notes)
• Optional: Hold a class “election” to see where students now stand on issues

This freebie also includes a brief teacher’s guide with additional ideas! Editable and PDF versions are both included.
