A civics lesson on wheels is coming to Kenwood High School.
Students are expected to enter the bus for between 15 and 20 minutes and watch a presentation on the importance of voting. They may also use interactive computer kiosks to "practice their critical thinking skills as they examine past elections and look at issues central to the current election," according to an announcement from school officials.
Social studies teacher Cindy Hoyer arranged the visit with C-SPAN, a non-profit cable network that focuses on objective coverage of national public affairs. Hoyer stated in the announcement that she has "a civic duty to stress the importance of taking part in the democratic process."
More information on the bus can be found on C-SPAN's website.
