DLS Voting Workbook-Daily Living Skills

DLS Voting Workbook-Daily Living Skills

Voting is from Susan Traugh’s Daily Living Skills series offering transitional skills for mild-to-moderately affected special needs students and general education students alike. Because of the intensive vocabulary in politics, this book is written a little higher than the normal third/low fourth grade level for the series and charts in at fifth-grade vocabulary. But, each vocabulary word (precinct, bi-partisan, non-partisan, etc.) is thoroughly defined directly after word introduction and the overall "feel" of the book matches the rest of the series. Like the other books, it contains airy-pages and bullet-point information for easy, independent study, yet, these books, nevertheless, respect teens’ maturity and humor while presenting federally mandated, Indicator 13 skills needed for adult independence. Workbooks are meant to be self-paced and adaptable with student interests and goals driving most units. Each lesson is taught in a short one-to-three page format with follow-up worksheets/activities to check comprehension. Real world activities are provided whenever possible. Lessons in Daily Living Skills Voting, include Why Vote? Does 1 Vote Matter?, Who Can Vote? How Do I Vote? How to Register, Voting Precincts, Ways to Vote, How Should I Vote? 2-Party System, What Parties Do; Third Parties; What Am I? (Conservative/Liberal); Who's With Me? Becoming Informed; Overcoming Bias; Government Responsibilities (Federal, State and Local), Becoming Involved. Also included are Parent Verification Letters, answer key and grading sheet.
