How To Kit - Elections 2011 (2011)

The authors of this kit note that while elections can be intimidating for a learner who is not familiar with the process, they also offer a great opportunity to build literacy skills.

The authors have included literacy activities that will inform learners about the political process; help them realize that their voices and votes count; develop election-related vocabulary; and encourage them to play an active role in the upcoming election. Among the activities in the kit are an election information scavenger hunt; a word search; and a survey of whether family and friends plan to vote.

The authors have also included information about different kinds of campaign advertising; links to a variety of other election resources; and a section on ways that learners can lobby candidates about the issue of literacy in their community.
