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.

Lesson Planet allows me to browse through teacher created lesson plans that I can easily adapt to fit with my class materials. I like how I can save plans that I choose so I can go back and find information and resources with ease.
