Two of the best resources out there for teachers and students – The National Writing Project and public television station KQED – have announced a new joint project called Letters to the Next President 2.0.
Here’s how they describe it:
Letters to the Next President 2.0 engages and connects young people, aged 13–18, as they research, write, and voice their opinions on issues that matter to them in the coming election. Hosted by the National Writing Project and KQED Education, together with key public media and Educator Innovator partners, Letters to the Next President 2.0 powers civic learning for a new generation of teachers, mentors, and youth.
Letters to the Next President 2.0 supports educators in providing interest-driven opportunities to foster and encourage youth voice and civic engagement. The project provides resources, learning opportunities, and curriculum ideas that help educators leverage the excitement around a national election by engaging youth in the US with reading, writing, and media-making about issues that matter.
I’m obviously adding this great resource to The Best Sites To Learn About The 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections.
