Election Related Class Activities


These are some election related class activities/assignments that can be used in social work classes.

1)    Require students to work on a campaign.  Leave the choice of candidates up to them, but ask for a narrative of what they did for the campaign. Ask how they applied their community organization/policy practice skills in the campaign.

2)   Critique campaign websites.

3)   Plan a mock campaign.

4)   Examine your state's PACE allocations.  Did the candidates win or lose?  Do they support social work?

5)   Select a candidate.  Where did this person get money for their campaign? Who are their competitors?  Where did their money come from?

6)  Who votes for social work? Trace legislative votes of lawmakers on issues important to social workers.
