Day 75--

Learning Target ImageWhat will I be able to do when I've finished this lesson?How will I  accomplish this task?  How will I show that I have done this?How well will I have to do this?
 I will be able to explain reasons why some choose to vote in certain ways in US elections. I will work with other students and the textbook to identify ways that different factors help identify how people vote.  I will create a slideshow presentation with a few other students to explain a set of terms and a single factor involved in people's voting behaviorThis is a formative assessment; it won't have a direct impact on my course grade, but it will help prepare me for the summative assessment on this unit. 

Yesterday we had a chance to look at why people choose not to vote. 
Today we'll look at factors that help determine how someone does vote once he or she chooses to do so.
  1. Open a copy of a Presentation called "Voter Behavior" and make a copy to share with your group.
  2. Use the instructions in the "Notes" section of each slide to collect, discuss, and present the requested information. 
  3. When you get to slide #4, focus on your assigned factor to try to determine sociological factors that influence voter behavior
  4. When finished, turn your assignment in to the daily work dropbox
