Looking to cover the upcoming election but don't know where to start? This is your one stop shop! Print and go! Document is ready to use.
This assignment has each student in your classroom choose a candidate running for office, research that candidate, and then present their findings in class. After both or all candidates have presented their case, the class will vote (I recommend using a Google Form). This is a great opportunity for students to debate back and forth as well as practice their oral language speaking skills.
Here is the assignment descriptor:
Choose a candidate and research him/her. Then, prepare an oral presentation to argue your case for him/her. Why should this person be elected? Why should the opposing candidate(s) not be elected? Then, you will present your research to the class and we will hold our own election! Will your candidate win?
Directions: Fill out the following information as you research your candidate. Answer as many questions below as possible to guide your research.
