In Election Connection, your students gain real-world design and marketing skills in the political campaign process. Election Connection creates a scenario where students take on the role of a marketing and design campaign manager for a candidate (of their choice) running for office.
Whether it is for a classmate running for a school office, or a local candidate running for town council, your students will develop the campaign materials used to promote their candidate. Throughout the simulation, students are guided step-by-step in creating an assortment of documents for their political candidate’s campaign. Creativity, design, marketing, and page layout skills are challenged as students receive hands-on experience in applying desktop publishing skills to a real-world political campaign.
