The 2008 Presidential Campaign
How do you get involved in the democratic process?
Update! Check out the 2008 Early Voting Statistics.

The political parties promote their ideologies and how their candidate will be the best President for the U.S.

Each party’s website promotes their ideologies, their candidates, and how specific information may affect the voters’ decisions.

Media websites can show any bias, polls, trends in voter turnout, and controversies that could sway how people vote. To learn history of the presidential races, go to
PBS: American President.

Students will learn about political agendas, media propaganda, and then choose a party affiliation. Students will then design an advertising campaign for their candidate.

It’s Over!
