Grade Level
This course represents a generalized experience of running for president of the United States of America. You’ll analyze your “fitness” for office, including both formal and informal qualifications to better the chance of success. Then, you’ll create a platform that will balance your beliefs with the needs of the country. Learn about Political Action Committees (PACs) and other sources of funding to bolster your “campaign platform,” as you work to gain trust and support. Review past campaigns to learn what strategies suit your “platform,” and understand how primaries and caucuses play a role in the overall election.  Finally, towards “election night,” you’ll explore the purpose of the Electoral College, and determine how students can debate the need to retain the electoral college. This course is packed with resources and ideas to bring the process of becoming the President of the United States to life!
