Nonpartisan Voter Education – Voting Modules
Posted by Project Pericles on June 18, 2019
Project Pericles developed Voting Modules—a set of curricular resources for educators, across all disciplines, who are interested in incorporating nonpartisan voter education into the curriculum. They were developed in collaboration with our faculty network and SLSV through the support of a 2018 SLSV subgrant. The modules are designed to cover three different areas: 1) deliberative dialogue discussion sections, 2) why voting matters, and 3) an overview of the registration and voting process. The sections on deliberative dialogue discussion sections can be customized for courses in the fine arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. The goal of the discussion is to empower students to see the connection between their stances on the issues that affect them, their elected officials, and the impact of their vote.
