This manual guides K-12 teachers through a two-week study of the election process in Indiana culminating in a school-based election. Election procedure is followed from voter registration through election returns. Indiana law mandates the study of elections during election years; this manual was created to facilitate the process. Grade levels and themes include: (1) "Grades K-1: I Scream - You Scream - We All Scream for...!"; (2) "Grades 2-3: It's a Right! Right?"; (3) "Grades 4-5: No Joke You Can Vote!"; (4) "Grades 6-7: Where In The World Is Your Candidate?"; (5) "Grades 8-9: It's Party Time!"; (6) "Grades 10-11: Voting, It's Not A Spectator Sport!"; and (7) "Grade 12: You Can Make A Difference. It's Time to Vote!" Lessons and teaching suggestions accompany each theme, appropriate to each grade level. A 49-item bibliography and a reference list conclude the unit. (EH)
