Welcome to Growing Voters!

The goal of Growing Voters is to provide engaging classroom activities and election lesson plans on voting to help students develop into informed and motivated participants in the American electoral system. Our tools are designed to help students develop a voice by learning to express themselves and communicate their understanding of the material to others. Growing Voters teaches students how to understand political spin and encourages students to grow their voices in the Democratic process

Election Lesson Plans

Our election lesson plans will engage and motivate student interest in voting and election-related projects, including reporting, debating, giving presentations, exchanging and comparing interview results, electronically sharing scrapbooks, and voting in a mock national election.

This curriculum project includes election lesson plans and classroom lessons on voting as well as a free list of online teaching resources that were vetted in part Masters students who participated in the Lesley University Educational Technology program. These tools will empower teachers and their students, and teachers can feel comfortable allowing their classroom to explore these sites knowing they have been screened by a reliable source.
