Voting is from Susan Traugh’s Daily Living Skills series offering life skills and transitional skills for mild-to-moderately affected special needs students and general education students alike. This workbook serves as both a traditional print version and an interactive version using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Workbooks are meant to be self-paced and adaptable with student interests and goals driving most units. Each lesson is taught in a short one-to-three page format with follow-up worksheets/activities to check comprehension. Real-world activities are provided whenever possible.
Because of the intensive vocabulary in politics, this book is written a little higher than the normal third/low fourth grade level for the series and charts in at fifth-grade vocabulary. But, each vocabulary word (precinct, bi-partisan, non-partisan, etc.) is thoroughly defined directly afterword introduction and the overall "feel" of the book matches the rest of the series.
Like the other books, it contains airy pages and bullet-point information for easy, independent study, yet, these books, nevertheless, respect teens’ maturity and humor while presenting federally mandated transition and Indicator 13 skills needed for adult independence.
