Attention Educators: We Have Lesson Plans on the New York State Constitutional Convention!
A large portion of New York voters do not understand or even know, about the 2017 Constitutional Convention ballot measure and the potential consequences of the vote.
To both ensure a more informed electorate, and to also engage young people in this important state political procedure, Generation Citizen has created a 2 Lesson Package for teachers to implement in their classrooms.
This lesson package is nonpartisan, approaching the upcoming vote from a historical perspective, while also providing the pro and con perspectives for students. The goal of these lessons is for students to:
- Become informed about this process;
- Make a personal decision on the matter; and
- Be motivated and able to inform their communities about the process.
