Well, the election is tomorrow... (In case you're unaware...) We spent the day discussing the role of government, the candidates, the electoral college, and an issue or two.
I tried to be as accurate as possible when discussing the issues, and give the candidates own rationale for why they are in favor or oppose the issue.
*All of you reading this don't realize that I just left my class for 35 minutes to go cover another class... because of that, I'm cutting my post short again.*
To get the extra credit today, choose 2 issues on the candidates site and read over them:
Then, discuss them with an adult. Write down which two issues you looked at, and what you think about the stances the candidates are taking. Have the adult you discussed it with sign the paper, and turn it in tomorrow.
