Accuracy: Limited (1)

The vocabulary presented in this lesson builds knowledge of government elections. The lesson does not include the three readings the teacher will include as part of the lesson. The accuracy from this rubric will be determined by the texts chosen by the teacher. One could use the Tool for Identifying Bias in Sources to make text selections. Also, I think the addition of critical thinking questions about our government such as who has traditionally lead it? who is not represented in elections and government? would give students the opportunity to think and discuss the topic further.
