Lesson Plan

Asking the Questions and Questioning the Answers

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

What would you ask a presidential candidate if you had the chance? Bring politics to your language arts classroom with this lesson plan, in which young readers brainstorm questions they would have liked the presidential candidates to answer. They consider questions created by experts, review debate transcripts, analyze candidates' responses to questions, and write reaction papers. Though the lesson plan is designed for the 2004 election, you could update it - or make it part of a history lesson plan.
