​The goal of the “Candidate Platform” assignment

The goal of the “Candidate Platform” assignment is to learn about the educational platform of a current candidate (at the local, state, or federal level) and the democratic issues around that platform—so that students can:

#1 understand the significance of the democratic process as it relates to schools and education in U.S. society

#2 develop critical reading skills and practices for interpreting public statements or platforms about education and school issues

The product you will create is an analysis designed for a peer who has not taken EDL 204, which can inform them about how this candidate’s platform relates to education issues and challenges in our country.

 

Background of the assignment

 

Fall 2020 is a significant election year (election day is Tuesday November 3).

Step #1: Researching your candidate’s positions

You will need to do research to complete this assignment. Visit at least one or two of the sites below to gather information about your candidate:

If you use other news-related and/or partisan sites (like political party sites), make sure you are taking into account the positions and biases of that party or group when you’re interpreting information from that site. This is a good introduction to critical reading of media in general that may be helpful: org/reading-room/news-balance-bias-critical-questions” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>https://www.medialit.org/reading-room/news-balance-bias-critical-questions (链接到外部网站。)

Step #2: Outline the paper, using these guidelines

  1. Introduce and describe the candidate and the position that they are running for (including whether that position is federal, state, or local) and any party affiliation. Discuss any particular issues around that position/office, as well as any particular issues or challenges in that district (e.g. is it a high poverty district? Rural? Urban?)
  1. Identify the candidate’s position on education or schools. Use websites, speeches, social media posts or other sources to describe, and explain any particular positions that the candidate holds related to schools, education, or children/families more generally. If that candidate is an incumbent or has held a previous office, you can also mention their voting record or previous legislative accomplishments regarding education bills or laws.
  1. What is mentioned and not mentioned in the candidate’s position statement? What positions are emphasized, and why? What seems missing? Is the statement vague, or detailed?
  1. How does this candidate’s campaign literature/messages use the word “democracy” and what do you think this candidate envisions this term to mean? If they do not use the term, how do they talk about democratic issues like rights, responsibilities, freedoms, and equality, etc. Discuss their meanings of democracy as compared with either Quantz or Collins (from assigned readings in EDL 204).
  1. How does this candidate differ from their opponent(s) on education issues?
  1. Make a claim about why voters should, or should not support this candidate, based on your analysis of their position(s) and/or record.
  1. Include 2-3 sources (outside of the candidate’s website) that refers to or further explains any of the candidate’s issues or context. (See above under “Research” for sources you can use to learn about your candidate’s positions.)
