Have you seen “The Learning Network” blog in the New York Times lately? They have created a series of lessons on the upcoming 2012 U.S. elections called the Election 2012 Unit. The unit consists of four “mini-units,” and culminates in a mock election (perhaps you will even use your MimioVote™ assessment to conduct your poll). Makes me wish I was back in Mrs. Houle’s class, learning all over again!
