October 16 - Analyzing Close Presidential Races with InspireData®:
How Might a Different Winner Have Changed History?

The 2008 presidential election is looking to be another nail biter, so we will tap into the excitement and use this "teachable moment" to look back in history at the other close presidential races. Then we'll examine how history might have been different if the candidate who was narrowly defeated had won.

Rick Reynolds, our Education Development Manager for Social Studies, will host a 45-minute webcast demonstrating how to:

· Use InspireData to analyze historical voting trends by state

· Help students see the importance of civic engagement and voting

· Manage the process of conducting additional research and recording findings in animated slide shows which can be played back for engaging student presentations

· Adapt the activity for different age groups and to develop additional skills
During the webcast, Rick will also be presenting the results of the Nationwide Mock Presidential Election we are running. If you and your students haven't done so already, please take a moment to weigh in with your votes! Click here to fill out the survey!
