If You Had to Vote Today . . .

In class today, I asked my FYE 1220 students to write down the answers to these two questions.

  • If you had to vote for US President today, who would you vote for?
  • Why?

They then folded the papers, and put them back into their notebooks; I won’t collect these.

Tonight, the students need to go to Glassbooth and take a short survey.¬†As Glassbooth puts it, “Glassbooth connects you to the 2008 presidential candidate that represents your beliefs the best.”

Wednesday in class, we’ll discuss reactions to similarities and differences between who they initially indicated they’d vote for and which candidate is most closely aligned with their stance on issues.
