This Political Issue Timeline lesson plan also includes:
As part of a study of US Presidential elections, class members track the history of an issue in the 2020 campaign. They create a timeline to determine if there are any patterns, if ideas about the issue have evolved, or if in issue is no longer relevant. After observing the timelines, individuals craft a short reflection about what they have learned from the exercise.
- Post the timelines and during a gallery walk, have class members take notes for their reflections
- To prevent repetition, assign or have groups select an issue to research
- The lesson is part of a series of resources from ProCon, a nonpartisan, informational resource
- Several alternatives are offered for the project, including as a remote learning activity
