Election Season 2012

2012 is an extra exciting year for the United States... we have the opportunity to choose our next president! This can be a great opportunity to discuss bias in information sources with students. While many sites aim to inform, many others are working hard to promote their candidate and ideas. It can be difficult even for experienced adults to find the clues that a website or resource is being less than honest about their agenda. When we know the purpose behind an information resource, we can better evaluate it for our needs.

Following are just a few links to great resources to help you begin planning how to incorporate the election fun in your classroom.
