2016 Election Resources

screen-shot-2016-10-07-at-7-11-25-amWhile teaching my course Exploring Nonfiction in the Elementary and Middle School Classroom this summer, I created this padlet page of resources on the 2016 Election. If you are a classroom teacher or school librarian trying to wrap your head around how to teach about this election, I hope these varied resources are useful to you. The Growing Voters project is created by one of my colleagues at Lesley University.
