Product Description

Are your students apathetic or disillusioned about voting, elections, and government leadership in general? This interactive mini-unit (called a Qit) can help! Students will be empowered to learn that even though they are too young to vote, there are several ways they can impact the outcome of elections as youth activists. Specifically, students will learn to: research candidates and the issues they stand for; volunteer for a candidate's campaign or from home using their passions and talents; harness the power of social media and online communities to garner support for candidates and issues; recognize propaganda and "fake news" by fact-checking; educate adults and urge them to vote; and organize a voter registration drive.

What's Included in This Qit

  • a Prezi in two formats (projectable and printable)
  • 5 one-page, black-and-white, printable activities
  • a user-friendly Answer Key
  • clear, detailed instructions and teaching tips

Description of Materials

  1. Prezi: Choose from either an exciting projectable Prezi (Internet connection required) or a one-page, content-rich printable. Both formats include a three-step strategy (broken down with in-depth examples and details), vocab words and definitions, a writing activity, and more — all wrapped up in a sleek, eye-popping design featuring bold colors and modern graphics to appeal to tweens and teens.
  2. Worksheet: This short-answer printable can be used as a guided note-taking companion to the Prezi OR after the Prezi as a review, group activity, homework, or a quiz. So flexible!
  3. Strategy Practice Activity: Students dive deeper into the strategy they learned in the Prezi by analyzing the dialogue between two characters called Goobs. The Goobs endear themselves to students through their use of relatable and comic language sprinkled with pop culture lingo as they struggle to solve a social-emotional problem or conflict.
  4. Extension Activity: The attention-grabbing, secret agent theme of this activity (inspired by the popular Mission: Impossible movies) will keep students engaged as they review and extend concepts learned in the Prezi. An included QR Code allows students to access an online incentive once this activity is complete.
  5. Writing Activity: Relatable questions challenge students to reflect, think critically, and demonstrate the concepts they've learned in this printable activity, which is perfect for assessment.
  6. Real-Life Challenges Activity: By completing a checklist of real-life challenges, students will apply the concepts they've learned throughout the Qit to their own lives so they may practice and experience the strategies in action. This activity bridges the gap between classroom learning and real life by encouraging students to independently seek opportunities to apply the strategies they’ve learned in order to make sound and healthy decisions for themselves.
  7. Answer Key: Super organized and easy-to-use, this guide includes everything you need!
  8. Instructions for Use: This resource includes basic instructions for use and is designed to be low-prep and user-friendly. But if you *love* details (like me!) and want more ideas and tips on how to get the absolute most out of this resource, these links were designed just for you: Video Tutorials on how to open, navigate, and present your Prezi; an awesome Printable Teaching Tips Guide which highlights the key features of each material and provides teaching tips and discussion questions; an FAQ Page for quick access to answers; and even a fun, one-minute video to introduce etiQit and the concept of social emotional learning (SEL) to your students.

Please note: Due to terms of use and copyright restrictions on the graphics included in this Qit, all of the materials, including the Prezi, are non-editable. If you have a request for an editable product, please contact me before you buy. Thanks!

Notes on the Prezi

A Prezi is a digital slide presentation similar to a PowerPoint, but equipped with much more exciting viewing features such as zooming, turning, and perspective-changing, which students tend to love! To keep things super simple, a web link and password to access your Prezi online are included in the PDF you download with this resource — which means no enormous Prezi file or additional software to download, just a link to click. An Internet connection is required to view the Prezi, but that’s it — so easy! If you’re nervous about using Prezi for the first time, I’ve got you covered with Video Tutorials on how to open, navigate, and present your Prezi. Not tech-savvy? Not a problem! My Prezis are designed to be intuitive and easy to use, even for people who’ve never tried a Prezi before.

Please note that while the Prezi is full of exciting colors, graphics, and rich content, it is non-editable and does not include sound.

PS — Have you seen this Harvard University study which found Prezis to be more engaging, persuasive, and effective than PowerPoint?? Check it out!
