The election season has arrived. L+D has created a set of learning experiences for students that can give educators the confidence they need to have important conversations about the election. The kit includes training videos, a facilitation guide, conversation protocol and more! Schools have the option to use some or all of the materials and to offer the activities to student as part of the curriculum or on a voluntary basis. This kit is flexible, adaptable and can even be facilitated remotely in the event that schools are not physically open.
- A suggested schedule of topics and activities that goes throughout the fall and culminates the weeks leading up to the election. Schools may use some or all of the materials.
- Additional Curriculum on the Electoral College, Watching the Debates, Media and Social Media, Voting and the Ballot as well as opportunity to explore specific election issues such as health care, immigration, racial justice, gun violence, and climate change.
- Materials and supplies for participants that can be copied for as many participants as needed for each day of the week as well as training videos.
- Facilitation Guides for teachers, student-leaders and administrators including sample communications to the community.
- Communication Protocols to accompany all conversations that are a part of the schedule.

Design For Election Week Discourse Agreement
Here at Leadership+Design we understand that the topic of Election Week can cause a lot of uncomfortable discourse, as many important discussions can. We’ve based the following guidelines on the goal of creating an environment where everyone feels able to contribute to and gain something from their participation in this conversation.
1.Our primary commitment is to learn from each other
We will listen to each other and not talk at each other. We acknowledge differences amongst us in backgrounds, skills, interests, and values. We realize that it is these very differences that will increase our awareness and understanding through this process.
2.Assume best intentions
Trust that people are doing the best they can and that everyone is attempting to balance being honest, vulnerable, and imperfect with standards of perfection, mastery, and survival.
3.Challenge the idea and not the person
If we wish to challenge something that has been said, we will challenge the idea or the practice referred to, not the individual sharing this idea or practice.
4.Redefine the term “Safe Space”
Conflict and discomfort are often a part of growth. Make sure to differentiate between feelings of discomfort and experiences with conflict and being unsafe.
5.Trust the process
The journey to our destinations offer us the chance to gain insights about ourselves and others. These insights help us grow and change and contribute to our cohesion, offering us opportunities for gratitude and appreciation on the way to goal achievement.
6.Be responsible for your actions
Whatever you post is your responsibility, Leadership+Design isn’t liable for whatever content you decide to share on the Slack forum. However, Leadership+Design does reserve the right to remove any content that we find offensive, hurtful, or intentionally inflammatory.
