In this height of the election season, we are all looking for ways in which we can approach instruction concerning the sometimes confusing primary and caucus process. Recognizing this, our own Dr. Terri Fine has crafted a 4 day lesson plan that provides students an opportunity to engage students in an exploration of those elements of an election. And if any election begged for help in understanding it, it is this one for sure! The lesson plan is aligned with the Florida high school civics benchmarks: SS.912.C.2.14 Evaluate the processes and results of an election at the state or federal level, and SS.912.C.2.2 Evaluate the importance of political participation and civic participation. That does not mean, however, that you couldn't use this to teach it in other grade levels or states! You can find the lesson plan on our website, and we are, as always very interested in feedback!
