As elections come around, it is often important to see what your students are concerned about in their everyday lives. But, it is just as important to look beyond your classroom and local community to see what is going on with students from around the country too!
Using this resource with connections to the website "Letters to Our President," students will be collaborating with other students to understand what issues they care about - and how those are similar or different to other American students.
A great three-day activity with rubric for evaluating student writing (a two page maximum reflection) that is great for midterm or presidential elections. Includes a detailed rubric, example letter, and graphic organizers to make everything easy for you!
