TheHomeSchoolMom's Resource of the Week: Could Lincoln Be Elected Today

“Could Lincoln Be Elected Today?” is a resource for teaching critical thinking from FlackCheck.org, the political literacy companion site to FactCheck.org. “The site provides resources designed to help viewers recognize flaws in arguments in general and political ads in particular. Video resources point out deception and incivility in political rhetoric.” Most of the content is video and a 4 page lesson plan PDF file is available for the Lincoln lesson. The resource is an excellent way to train students to look for manipulation and fallacies in political arguments, and it is enlightening to learn the lesser known facts about Lincoln and see how they could be used against him if he were to run for president today.
