GPB’s Education Team is joining forces with our very own Bill Nigut to give Georgia teachers and students what they need: a journey through the political process culminating with the 2016 Presidential Election. Each episode will be aligned to the Georgia standards and will include printable teacher resources.
In On the Campaign Trail’s first episode, “That’s Debatable,” Bill explains the historical importance of debates, their overall structure, and how the debate airing Wednesday, September 16th will differ from other debates students will watch during the general election. He provides students with ideas about who and what to look for while watching “That’s Debatable” will feature a watch guide for students to complete while they tune in to the debate, constructed response questions surrounding the debate, and class discussion questions.
Tune in on September 15th to On the Campaign Trail’s first episode, “That’s Debatable,” as Bill explains the ins and outs of the debates that will lead us to the next president of the United States.
