WMS Civics in Action!

A male student is interviewing a female student.Students in Mrs. Miller’s Civics class at Wallace Middle School are participating in a campaign finance game to learn more about how much it costs to run a successful campaign!

Students got to interview classroom “candidates” about different issues in order to make educated decisions about whom to support.  After each group or individual makes their contribution, candidates and their campaign managers have to total the funds and that’s when the fun begins:  deciding on the best way to allocate their funds according to pre-determined categories.  The goal is to spend in a way that will get higher voter recognition, which will result in more votes!
