The Vote module encourages students to evaluate what impact their action has had, reflect on any change it has created, and consider the campaigns of others in the class. Through the process of presenting party platforms, writing and delivering campaign speeches, designing How to Vote cards, and experiencing a mock election, students will gain a deeper understanding of the Victorian electoral system and why their vote is so important.
We highly recommend that you book in a Passport to Democracy mock election incursion to supplement and enhance this learning. This incursion is free and available to any Victorian school, regardless of sector or location.
As with all our resources, choose the activities and lessons which suit your needs (and those of your students) the best. The lessons which we consider to be a “core” component of the Passport to Democracy program have been highlighted in red in the downloadable resource.
