Product Description
These Presidential Election Discussion and Writing resources extend students' learning about how U.S. presidents are elected. Two different resources are included in this product: 16 discussion topics on task cards that can also be used for writing tasks and the same 16 topics on individual lined pages for writing assignments.

(Please note: These two resources are included in my Presidential Election Activities product, which offers 6 additional resources for learning about the presidential election; you can find out more HERE.)

All the speaking and writing topics include images that illustrate the topics plus key words and phrases in the form of relevant vocabulary words to support students as they work. A separate lined page is included for students who need more space when writing their responses to the topics. An assessment rubric is also provided so you can easily evaluate your students' writing. Also included in this product is a page that offers 5 suggestions for using the Discussion resource and 5 suggestions for using the Writing resource. A list of the ELA Common Core standards that this product addresses is provided on a separate page for teachers who work in states that use the CCSS.

These discussion and writing topics are written in easy-to-understand language so English Language Learners as well as students reading below grade level can understand them, although some students may still need additional support from you or their classmates for some of the topics. The first three topics were specifically written so ELLs at lower levels of language proficiency can comprehend and respond to them.

Key words and phrases that are used in these Presidential Election Discussion and Writing Resources are: ballot, candidate, caucus, convention, delegate, election, inauguration, platform, political party, president, primary, register, representative, senator, vote, and Washington, D.C.

Help your students develop their speaking and writing skills with these engaging presidential election resources!
