RESOURCES
 

How Can We Get More Young People to Vote? New Above the Noise Episode

The new episode of Above the Noise by KQED Learn discusses how to get more young people to vote. Voting is a really important part of the democratic process. We all know this, but in reality, many people don't vote. That is especially true for younger generations who historically have had very low voter turnout rates in the U.S. This is kind of a big deal because younger people have a lot at stake in most elections. So, why don't young people vote as much as older people? To view this video click here


 
Youth Voting Research 

CIRCLE  offers series of research that addresses youth voting trends, recent Presidential & midterm primaries, caucuses and elections, voting laws, what works in getting out the vote (GOTV), and local political parties and youth. 
Many efforts to increase youth voting focus on getting young people registered. That's a crucial component to driving electoral engagement, but it's only half the battle; we need to ensure that registered youth actually go out and cast a ballot on Election Day.

civic and political engagement of young American click here

              
Fact-Checking the Future: The News Literacy Project Expands Online
Classroom for Youth

The News Literacy Project (NLP) has launched a reimagined version 2.0 of its Checkology virtual classroom. It is  an enhanced e-learning platform educators can use to teach middle school and high school students the critical-thinking skills needed to assess news and other information. It features new lessons requested by teachers, improved interactivity and design, and game-like exercises where students can practice their news literacy skills. A key new functionality allows teachers to customize and sequence lessons based on their classroom objectives. To check out Checkology 2.0 click here. 

OPPORTUNITIES

Introducing a Youth Media-Making                          Toolkit

A first-of-its-kind comprehensive package designed for educators working with young people ages 13-18.  The lessons and actions fully connect media-making with our democracy, elections, and voting. The Youth Media-Making Toolkit promotes youth voice, voting, and democratic participation through media creation. Lessons guide teens to plan, make, and share diverse media about voting and civic engagement:  short videos, photos, Internet memes, animated GIFs, and persuasive images for social media.
