Presidential Campaigning

Today we introduced the executive branch of the government. Students were assigned a week long project to help them experience the process of running for president.

In one week, they are expected to complete the following items:

1. Campaign Speech
    - 3 - 5 minutes
    - Addresses at least two issues they will take on during their presidency

2. Campaign Poster
     - 11 x 17 (paper provided in class)
     - full color
     - contains campaign slogan

3. Campaign Budget
     - each student starts with $1000
     - budget must show what every dollar is spent on (actual figures need to be looked up)
     - if students want additional funding, they may write a business letter to a particular business or organization requesting support. These letters will be turned in to me and will be returned with a yes or no.
