Mrs. Hall’s US History classes created Mock Elections of 1912:

“This was the first election in history when a 3rd party candidate (Theodore Roosevelt ran as a Progressive Party candidate) had a major impact of the election results. Students play the roles of Democrat Woodrow Wilson, Republican William Taft, Progressive Theodore Roosevelt, and Socialist Eugene Debs.

Other students are uncommitted voters who are lured by the candidates and campaigns.” ~Mrs. Hall
