Contemporary American elections take place at a time of deep political division. Given increasing levels of partisan polarization, more and more voters cast straight-ticket ballots and fewer and fewer appear to be undecided.

Just how effective are those efforts? This workshop is designed to answer that question by providing the analytical tools to better understand campaigns and elections so you are prepared to teach the election in your own classrooms during the 2024 election season.
