Raising A.B.C. (A Better Citizen)  Kids Get Out the Vote
Raising A.B.C. is designed to help students discover how candidates get elected and how participating in the voting process creates better citizens.  Raising A.B.C.--Kids Get Out the Vote was written by Peggy Wyns-Madison, a former Teachers Network web mentor. 

Introduction
Raising A.B.C. is a series of activities aimed at motivating students to research, discuss, and develop strategies for becoming better citizens nationally and globally. Participants investigate the  U.S. presidential and congressional elections as well as elections around the world. Students will discover how candidates get elected and how participating in the voting process creates better citizens. 


Three major activity centers help students learn about the election process: 

alt Voters' Booth focuses on the election process. Students learn how citizens exercise their right to vote around the country and globally. 
Learn how to empower citizens in your community to exercise their voting rights! 

alt Speakers' Bureau opens the door for dialogue. Students research the candidates, discuss campaign issues and challenge each other with presidential trivia questions. Since we are a global society, students evaluate how the election of the next president of the United States will affect the entire world. 

alt Campaign Lobby displays student-generated artwork.  Voice your thoughts and share your knowledge of presidential facts!  Through posters, political cartoons, and other art forms, students use visuals and text to encourage citizens to vote. How can you best illustrate your candidate's platform? How can political cartoons educate citizens? 


Use your artistic talent to get citizens to vote! 


We hope you and your students will have an enjoyable learning experience with Raising A.B.C.--Kids Get Out the Vote.
