This government regulating site tracks campaign and political donations both to candidates, and from whom. The site strives on providing clarity to political sponsors, bringing about the question of bias and political influence of sponsors.

tag(s): politics (99)

In the Classroom

Use this site on the interactive whiteboard during a lesson on campaign finance. Looking at parties or recent candidates, explore with students who's donating, leading into a discussion of the impact that donations can have. This would be great after a lecture detailing finance reform, such as the McCain-Feingold act in a U.S. government classroom.

tag(s): news (261), newspapers (94)

In the Classroom

During a lesson on the impact of the media on government and public opinion, have students select this newspaper and another to study for bias. Using a venn digram, have students compare the audiences of both papers, as well as framing issues, coverage, and popularity by numbers. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here).This would be a great in class activity before a class discussion of the impact newspapers can have, before focusing on the effects of more popular mediums - such as television.

tag(s): congress (33), news (261)

In the Classroom

Use the articles on this site as writing prompts for students at the end of a unit or lesson on current legislative measures being debated by Congress. Many of the articles span content crossing US borders, and some are controversial enough that it could stir up a myriad of student responses. Allow students to reflect in written essays or in journal writings to be turned in afterwards. To continue to content, have a class discussion afterwards to allow students to share and debate their opinions.
