Many Social Studies and IB Theory of Knowledge classes use a presidential election year as an excellent opportunity to analyze political ads. There are many resources related to those kinds of lessons at The Best Sites To Learn About The 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections.
I’ve been revising my TOK lessons, and I’m exploring ideas for different lessons I can try. I saw the video embedded below analyzing how Donald Trump talks, as well as these two pieces analyzing the grade level of the candidates’ speeches, and have been trying to think of a way to use them as part of a lesson.
I’m coming up blank, however.
Do you have any ideas? Even if you don’t, though, I think the articles and video are pretty interesting.
