From launching a campaign to taking the oath of office, students will learn about the process of running for the office of presidency of the United States. In this interactive session, they will use visual information including current photographs and archival film footage to examine the electoral process and discuss what voters need to consider when selecting a candidate. Following the program, students can follow JFK’s journey to the White House by using information gleaned from the John F.
