Teaching about the 2012 Elections Using the Internet--Part 2
Risinger, C. Frederick
Social Education, v76 n5 p242-243 Oct 2012
In the previous issue of "Social Education," this column looked at the upcoming elections from a more general point of view and recommended websites that examined presidential election history, voting laws, and the origins of the Electoral College and how it works. In this column, the author focuses specifically on this year's presidential battle and pay some attention to the struggle over the control of Congress. The 2012 elections, nationally and at the state and local levels, present a tremendous challenge to social studies teachers and educators. The websites the author recommended in this paper provide links to both elementary and secondary lesson plans, collaborative projects, and other learning activities he believe would be effective and enjoyable for both students and teachers.
