Abstract: 
This article outlines a 7th grade social studies lesson designed to help students practice the norms
necessary for public deliberation and develop strategies to critically interrogate political and media
messages during a campaign. It outlines ways to engage students in the critical analysis of candidates’
websites to understand their positions on public issues, such as health care, climate change, affordable
college, and immigration, in order to “develop the habits of thinking and caring necessary for public life”
(Parker, 2005, p. 348).
