Free Technology For Teachers: Super Tuesday- A Super Step on the Path to the Presidency

CNN has an Elections 101 section that succinctly explains the path to the White House for the next president. Like NPR, CNN has an election map with dates. The CNN map (see left) is not as interactive as the NPR map, but what CNN does have is the complete collection of CNN sponsored debates available for free on video.









Applications For Educators
The Election 101 page is good reference from which students can gain a basic understanding of the election process. The video section is a good resource for showing students how a debate actually works as well as exposing students to the positions of the various candidates. All of the videos are available for download in Quick Time or Windows Media formats.
