Presidential Election One Year Away

Students identify political parties, then read a news article about the 2008 election. In this current events activity (written prior to the 2008 election), the teacher introduces the article with a discussion and vocabulary activity, then students read the news report and participate in a think-pair-share discussion. Lesson includes interdisciplinary follow-up activities.
