 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. 

Turn your assignment in to the Dropbox or hand it in if you've done it on paper.

Today we look at the impact on money on elections, using the textbook and a website that tracks political fundraising and spending. 
Open the online assignment about the role of money in the election process. Create your own answers in your own assignment, but feel free to ask others (or the teacher, of course) when you have questions or need help finding or understanding something.
