Teach the importance of civic engagement with “Election 2018: AETN Debates.”
AETN will present eight debates Oct. 8-12 featuring U.S. Congressional Districts 1-4, attorney general, secretary of state, lieutenant governor and governor. Consider using the live stream of the debates in your classroom, and hold a mock vote based on the candidates’ performance. Or, host a student debate after students watch the broadcast.
Looking for a field trip? All debates are free and open to the public. They will be held at the Donald W. Reynolds Performance Hall on the University of Central Arkansas campus in Conway, and AETN welcomes school groups.
