As the race to the White House heats up, PBS LearningMedia has launched the Election 2012 Collection, a compilation of election-focused digital resources available to K-12 classrooms and educators nationwide. The 2012 Election Collection features a student-aimed Elections 2012 newscast, highlighting issues from the campaign trail, a multimedia glossary, interactive digital games and lesson plans geared towards high school students and teachers.
The Election 2012 newscast, titled “In the News,” features a playlist of video clips focused on current events involving the candidates and issues in the upcoming presidential election. The Election 2012 Collection will also feature “Road Trip to the White House,” a new game that requires students to correctly answer questions based on animations and multimedia glossary terms, like PAC, Super PAC, primary, caucus, delegates, party platform, battleground states and more.
