In-Class Resources and Activities

NOTE: It is a violation of Illinois election code to offer extra credit for students to register to vote or vote. Voter registration and voting cannot be incentivized. This is also an equity issue if students are not able to vote. An alternative would be a brief writing prompt or video response where students answer a question - What is an issue that is important to you and how could voting or other forms of political engagement help support your views? Why do you think some people register to vote and vote, while others do not? Describe your views on elections.
