Political Platform Lesson

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Samantha Slifer (Teacher (K-12)), Nov 07, 2012

I think it is great that you are creating a lesson that is relevant to the time period of the election and using Rock the Vote because it is so well known. It is good that you are giving the students background knowledge and going over important vocabulary terms. This will help the students to better understand the information that they will encounter while completing the project. I think it is great that the students get to experience the whole political platform process and are able to create their own platform.  I like that this is project-based because it is a real-life problem and it is a very motivational strategy.  I think that the project is very relevant and engaging for the students.  I like the incorporation of technology and the use of interactive timelines. I would be very interested in seeing this in action. Overall, it is a great, engaging and relevant lesson!

Technical Remarks:

I was able to easily open the PDF.
