Local Motives

Investigate current local elections across the United States with this New York Times reading lesson plan. Using informational text, middle and high schoolers research local elections and create their own news reports about what they discover. This lesson plan would be a great way to work on word choice and bias in a language arts class, or to explore the election process in a government class.
