Class Experience

(1) To see how presidential elections usually set the direction of the country for coming years.
(2) To understand how important it is for people to vote
(3) To understand the importance of presidential leadership in the United States
Students will receive handouts that can be read before class to become familiar with content. One handout will explain important terms and events that will be mentioned during class. The handouts will also be useful for those who want to take notes. During class, students are encouraged to speak at any time, but presentation of information will be emphasized rather than group discussion.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
