Election Coverage

21Oct16 
Every four years we get a chance to focus on a bit of national history in our books. And this year will no doubt be one of the most historic and talked about elections. Whether you include a simple survey or devote two pages to the 2016 Presidential Election, have fun with your coverage and design. Consider these possibilities:
 
  • Poll students on who they would have voted for
  • Write a feature about the seniors who volunteered on a political campaign
  • Interview students who voted for the first time
  • Gather opinions on the results of the election
  • Create a timeline of the most interesting and unusual soundbites from the election
  • Explain the Electoral College through graphics and text
  • Utilize an artist to create drawings, painting or computer-generated art of the candidates and the parties
