I am not a Social Studies teacher, but I am wondering whether any of you are planning on "teaching" the election this year or next year. I had an experience at my pre-practicum at a Middle School where the teacher showed the class a few of Mr. Trump's bigoted statements towards Muslims and several students/teachers laughed (because of how ridiculous some statements were.) Then, many Muslim students were upset and went to their parents because they felt like teachers/students were making fun of bigotry in the presidential election. The school also had a mock election and announced the results. Do you think it is possible to discuss the current election without hurting students or showcasing your own political views?
