It’s never too early for civic engagement. Newsela is giving students a chance to have their vote counted on key issues and providing free access to safe, vetted content to help teachers take on the election in their classroom.
Our election lesson content is curated from a variety of vetted sources to build background knowledge on our electoral process, the issues at hand, and candidates, with built-in connections between the past and present.
We’re giving our 37 million registered students a voice. Leading up to November, we’re releasing student polls on key issues to provide a future generation of voters with a platform to have their voices heard on the issues that are important to them.
Help students form their own opinions and engage in positive discussions, with embedded essential questions, along with election lesson supports from Teaching Tolerance that model civil civic engagement.
Get tips for addressing complex election-related topics and guiding meaningful classroom discussions with a calendar of webinars and resources.
Engage future voters at all grade levels with student polling to gauge their opinion on the most-discussed election issues. Check back for national poll results and new polls launched monthly through the school year.
