This brief, but engaging PowerPoint provides students an overview of the redistricting process as well as the more controversial aspect of gerrymandering. Topics covered include: gerrymandering and its forms; the redistricting process; the arguments for and against both partisan as well as racial gerrymandering; and variances in how states conduct the redistricting process, including certain types of reforms. Key vocabulary is underlined and group discussion questions are inserted for class reflection. An exit ticket slide is included at the end to assess vocabulary understanding.
