Asking the Questions and Questioning the Answers

What would you ask a presidential candidate if you had the chance? Bring politics to your language arts classroom with this lesson, 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 is designed for the 2004 election, you could update it - or make it part of a history lesson.

I have been able to find a variety of resources to meet a variety of needs. As a special ed teacher I need to continually find new ways of presenting the material and Lesson Planet always has many great ideas that have worked wonderfully in my classroom. It's especially great when I need to make a last minute change to a lesson!
