Elected by you: The importance of voting
The goal of this unit is to teach students the basics of the election process by holding a class election. This unit could be used to help students understand about the policies and procedures associated with the election process which involves a basic knowledge of rights and responsibilities. The school library is a place where students have the rights and responsibilities of obtaining resources. A goal of this unit could be to demonstrate knowledge of the circulation policies and procedures. A secondary goal of the unit is to help students understand that the voting process has to do with electing officials who may make laws which we have to obey. Copyright is one law about which the school librarian has knowledge. Another goal of this unit could be to introduce students to this law.
