Second grade teacher, Maci Dyer and Librarian, Liz Ford, co-taught a lesson on the voting process. Each teacher role-played a candidate by taking a specific platform. Students cast their ballots based upon the platform they preferred. They were expected to back up their vote by explaining why they made the choice they did. Who would vote for reading and math over video games and extra recess? Several students did! Students were highly engaged in meaningful instruction that revolved around FUN learning!
