Meet the candidates

Posted on: 24 August 2008

Found this via the teachers.net chatboard. Wouldn’t this be a cool tool to talk about the presidential candidates with students? The presentation style really lends itself to a discussion of whether or not the president actually has the power to do what the candidates are promising to do.  Which is one of my huge pet peeves–when they promise stuff that anybody who can READ the constitution knows they don’t have the authority to actually accomplish.  (Speaking of election stuff, I’ve pre-ordered these comic books for my library. I couldn’t resist. A COMIC book! About our future President! Neat-ola).
