ARE YOU LOOKING FOR "EXCEPTIONAL"
NIE ELECTION MATERIALS?
Consider the following NIE curriculum that can be printed in
standard 8 1/2" x 11" workbook format, or as a TAB!
PRESIDENTS, POLITICS, & THE PROCESS:
This exciting NIE curriculum guide focuses on the Presidency, as well as presidential
elections. What is so unique about this well-focused book of NIE lessons is that it
captures each of our (42) U.S. president's personal imprint on history. In the first
section of the 64-page guide (16-page tab), each president is introduced with a portrait,
biographical information, a well-known quotation, and a theme of focus. The
activities send students searching through today's newspaper to make connections between
the power struggles, wars, economic and social issues, and political campaigns of
yesterday with those of today, thus creating a "real" understanding of the
office of the presidency.
The second section of the curriculum teaches students about "the process" of
electing a U.S. president, taking students through the newspaper following today's
political campaigns. American history teachers love this book, because it is timeless and
can be used long after the election year. (written for middle school & high school)
