Teaching about the 2012 Elections Using the Internet
Risinger, C. Frederick
Social Education, v76 n4 p187-188 Sep 2012
Many readers may recall that this author wrote an open letter to President Obama in 2010 where he took issue with the emphasis on math and science education resulting in the marginalization of social studies and citizenship. In this column, he has selected and written about websites that focus on the election process. The author hopes this will also be useful in communicating the importance of this election and of citizenship education to students and colleagues. In the author's subsequent column, he will focus more on candidates, their platforms, and how to help students track election issues and predict winners. Some sites will probably appear in both columns, but for different reasons.
