REVIEW
Student Voices provides resources and information for students and teachers that encourage civic involvement of young people by bringing the study of local government, policy issues, and political campaigns into the classroom. This interactive Website allows students to find information on issues and candidates and discuss policy issues online in the Speak Out area. The student resources section contains links to official government sites for learning about the local, state and federal governments as well as links for general research, constitutional research, election information, and high quality news sites. The teacher resources offers curriculum and lesson plans for download, templates and handouts, interactive classroom tools, project ideas, and videos produced by students across the country. This is a great place to go for resources that make the study of government relevant and exciting for high school students.
