The study of elections can be a challenge, even for adults. With so much information in the media, a citizen can feel overwhelmed. Younger students can be effectively introduced to the elections through the newspaper using the following guide, “Election Primary.”
This newspapers in education guide was written by Debbie Lerner and Eileen Bergman educators from Kansas City, Missouri. The guide was edited and published by Anne West, News Relief, Inc. and distributed by the NIE Institute.
The activities in this guide are designed to assist educators of primary students in providing ideas for using the newspaper with students in grades one through three.
