Especially in mid-term and presidential election years, students will learn about political socialization, political parties, voting and other forms of political action, especially why it is important to participate in a democracy. A two-day mini-unit on political socialization will be followed by a seven-day unit on political parties where students will compare and contrast party platforms of the major and third parties. In a subsequent 6-day unit, students will learn why voting is important as well as explore possible political actions beyond the voting booth. This document emphasizes lessons that prepare students to take political action.
