Redistricting: Drawing the Lines

This Redistricting: Drawing the Lines lesson plan also includes:

Difficult redistricting concepts are covered in a context that will make it understandable to your government scholars. They begin with a KWL on the term redistricting and then watch a video to answer some questions. They analyze political cartoons using a graphic organizer (included), focusing on satire. Scholars find their own state districting boundaries and reflect on the implications. Finally, they use another handout to create their own political cartoon based on opinions they have formed about gerrymandering. Learners can also write a letter to their state legislature expressing these views. A rubric is included.
