Thanks for the additional resources, Sandra! Love http://www.procon.org, I've added it to the list above! I like how your blog post ties in election issues to all the different subjects -- not just the low-hanging fruit of social studies ;-). Critical thinking is the bedrock of so many disciplines.

Thanks for sharing these videos and links - they are a great place to start kids thinking and writing! What better time to learn how to think critically than election time. For some ideas on how to use election issues and critical thinking strategies in any discipline check out this blog entry "Election Issues and Critical Thinking Resources" at http://bit.ly/QqeSnw. Procon.org is a great place to start!
