Go Beyond the Ballot
By drawing students’ attention to their local governments, systems and services, students will gain appreciation for the potential power of their actions at a local level. Students will work together to choose an issue in their community they feel needs to be solved, and then seek out a local elected official to address it. By the end of the two lessons, students will be better equipped to engage in their local communities.
