Product Description
I have used this in both 8th grade U.S. History classes and Academic Skills Building for Social Studies classes. This can be used in conjunction with an election, during a current events lesson, or during a civics lesson. I have used this assignment as both a take-home essay and an in-class open response.

This is an open response essay which asks the students to pick three issues that they would like to address if they were President of the United States. We have typically talked about these issues in class many times before, and they are able to scour the web in order to see what other issues they may want to talk about. I ask them to use the planning sheet to help them organize their essay. I emphasize that they need to show me how they are going to address the issue and use supporting details.
