Reviewer Comments:

This asset is a lesson plan for one day of a unit that covers political campaigning. The lesson focuses on students creating a candidate and coming up with individual campaign tools for the candidate. The overall idea is excellent, however, the lesson is incomplete. It refers to the previous lesson about the electoral process and also mentions examples to show students all of which are necessary in order to implement the lesson.
