About this Grantee

To give their disadvantaged students practical experience with the political process, Ms. Miller-Alper, Ms. Frimel, and Mr. Koupa design a political science curriculum that focuses on voter registration. Students meet political candidates while organizing and conducting community forums, participate in mock elections, and analyze election data. Students create trunks of voter registration materials, then launch registration campaigns and examine data to assess the effectiveness of those campaigns.
