Elect Ed Case! A resource for teaching about elections

June 15, 2012

Jonathan Gullis, who will be joining the teaching team at Blackfen in September, has put together a clever lesson about the London Mayoral elections. He created a persona, Edward Case (aka ‘ed case), who wants to become the Mayor of London, and then asked students to come up with policies and slogans to help Edward Case get elected.

Now it’s obviously a little late to use this exact lesson, but I think the format would work very well with any election, or even any problem you want your students to set about solving. Jonathan’s resources are attached below.
