Product Description
Presidential Election & Inauguration: Becoming the President Texts & Activities

This civics unit teaches students the presidential election process, focusing on the Electoral College, Caucuses and Primaries, and Inauguration Day. Each text includes comprehension questions.

Passages discussing the arguments for and against the Electoral College are included. Teachers can use them in various ways, including a persuasive essay or as a basis for debate.

Excerpts from Kennedy's and Reagan's First Inaugural Addresses are also included with higher level comprehension question. These are a great way to integrate the reading skills for social studies! Teachers can use these passages to have students compare the written text with a video recording of the speeches. Teachers could also have students compare and contrast the Inaugural Addresses.

To review the election process, students complete a timeline of events.

- Understanding the Electoral College
