As you start the new school year, students will be very interested in learning about and discussing the current issues, candidates and roles of the president. This resource provides your students with an introduction to the election. The first handout is a Table of Contents page which students will keep in their binders. It will help them organize all of their election materials throughout September, October and the first week in November. The second handout lists all of the current issues that the candidates (all four of them) have been debating, discussing and writing about. Students will write a short opinion piece describing the issues that is most meaningful to them and what they would do to improve people's lives (as it pertains to that issue) if they became president. The third handout gives students the opportunity to answer several questions related to the roles and responsibilities of the president. Students should complete these handouts before they learn about the candidates' perspectives of election issues and before they learn about the roles, responsibilities and qualification requirements of the president.
