Chalk the Vote: Education and Presidential Elections

In today's polarized political climate, presidential elections can be a difficult subject in the classroom. On one hand, current events can be a link between today's students and the elections of the past, but on the other hand, teachers of history must be careful to form a wall of separation between educating and electioneering. Join KATH in finding the perfect intersection between hot-button issues of the day and their connection to the past.
