Presidential campaign game turns students into electoral strategists
Pros: Get students to explore real-life political issues and the election process. There's tons of in-game help as well as extension resources.
Cons: The student goes first in each round, gaining an unfair advantage. It's unclear what the effects of some choices are, like running mate and home state.
Bottom Line: This game gives students a valuable perspective on the nuts and bolts of political campaigns, and the tough choices they must make.
