The New York Times Free Election Lessons

Posted by Alyssa O'Mara on Tue, Sep 4, 2012

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!
