Election 2020 (Nic)

On the ballot this November (it’s a big one), Washington state voters will be asked to decide on:

  • President of the United States
  • Governor
  • All 10 members of the US House of Representatives from the state
  • Whether public schools should be required to teach comprehensive sex ed
  • Half of the seats in the State Senate
  • All of the seats in the State House
  • Eight other statewide executive offices
  • and much much more

In this course we will both study the background issues in many of these races and follow the news as election day nears.

Student work will include research, creating presentations, and general current-events-newsfollowing. In addition, each student in the class will be encouraged to choose an active campaign and do a small amount of volunteer work with the campaign prior to election day.

No prior knowledge/experience necessary.
