Every Vote Counts
Have you or one of your students ever wondered; "Does my vote really make a difference? It’s only one vote."
Nassau BOCES and the Center for Online Learning has developed a new mini course offered at three grade band levels- 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12 to support students' understanding of the election process and to get to know this year's presidential candidates. These units contain everything you need to make this election come alive for your students and is aligned with state social studies standards, as well as new framework regents exams (9-12 version).
The Every Vote Counts course is housed in the Learning Management System (LMS) Agilix Buzz. Teachers will be given full editing rights to the course to edit/modify or enhance the content to meet the needs of their students.

This, of all elections, is one of the most unique and important in American history.
