Instructional Ideas

  • The background materials could be used as part of an assessment of Barack Obama's presidency
Classroom Considerations

  • The activity was designed for the 2008 presidential campaign and reflects that year's candidates, but the materials could be edited to reflect the current year's candidates
Pros

  • Although dated, the exercises do direct attention to a side-by-side comparison of the candidates
Cons

  • Major revisions would be necessary to the materials to reflect candidates in the current election
