Every fall our students participate in a Student Council campaign. Each class will vote on a class president, class vice president, and secretary. Our students are not required to run, but are required to write a speech. This year I plan to use If I Ran for President by Catherine Stier as a resource for vocabulary.
I am sure many of you have seen it, read it, or even own it. It is a cute book, and one that explains the presidential process. I think my favorite part of the book is that the main character, Ben, doesn't win the election. It demonstrates for students that just because you run does not necessarily mean you will win.
I have created a vocabulary flip book for this book and it is available HERE.
