Voter Information and Education Programs 2: Voter Education Programs in the Schools.
Kalba Bowen Associates, Inc., Cambridge, MA.
Arranged in five chapters, this handbook provides teachers with a variety of short-term modular, and semester-long voter education programs suitable for use at either the elementary or secondary level. The first chapter, an introduction, provides an overview of the status of student voter education programs and recommends possible roles for election officials in the development and implementation of such programs. The second chapter contains information and recommendations for short- and long-term and modular projects for middle schools and high schools. Three types of mock elections are outlined and sections and sample lessons from one long-term project, Project PAVE (People and Action in Voter Education), are provided. A chapter on elementary level voter education describes how mock elections can be used at each of the lower grades and briefly describes some other materials available for this level. The fourth chapter focuses on using election officials as resources. The final chapter discusses voter registration related activities, including actual registration of high school students, the appointment of student deputy registrars, and registration drives. Three appendices contain the following materials: thirty classroom activities; a list of community, state, and national resources; and a list giving names and titles of election and education officials interviewed during state visits. A bibliography concludes the publication. (LP)
