dc.description.abstract In the current political climate it can be difficult to sift through the piles of information given to us about each candidate and make a decision on whom to vote for. So difficult in fact, that much of our generation chooses not to vote at all. To help a group of students who found themselves unsure, we created a class on the 2012 Presidential Election between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. In this class we explored different sides of important issues, explained some complicated topics and helped the students see which candidate supported what side of the issues. On top of this our focus was to help them discover their own political leanings. Throughout the class, we used assignments to gauge whether or not they were becoming more aware of their political stances and if being informed leads to a certain type of voting.
