With the 2016 Presidential election campaigns in full swing, this workshop will help you teach students how to think critically about elections and public policy. Lessons will focus on voters and elections; government institutions, programs, marginal error, and public choice. Students will become informed citizens as they consider the tradeoffs involved in setting public policy. They will learn to articulate their own views by evaluating primary and secondary sources, engaging in group activities and discussions, and writing brief essays. Workshop participants will receive electronic copies of lessons used during the session.
