Presidential Debate Recap Event
Sunday, November 4, 2012 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
As part of a Social Responsibility Project, graduate students in the Human Psychological Counseling department have developed a
Presidential Debate Recap event to be held on
Sunday, November 4, 2012
7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Room 124, Reich College of Education
We are writing to invite you, and the students with whom you work, to attend.
If you teach courses, perhaps you would consider offering extra credit for your students who attend this program. We will be glad to provide confirmation of attendance if you would like to employ this option. This event is open to both the community and students.
The purpose of this event is as follows:
- To help inform voters prior to the election.
- To provide information and directions about how to register to vote.
- Many people, including college students, do not watch presidential debates for several reasons, one of which is not wanting to wade through the complexities of political issues. With this program, we hope to inform voters, particular college-age voters (who may be voting for the first time), about both sides of the arguments before casting their votes "blindly."
The event will be structured as follows:
- Two individuals (role-playing Romney and Obama) will present items stated during the presidential debate, according to presidential debate transcripts.
- A powerpoint presentation will be presented indicating if the statements made are "true" or "not true" (stating when the candidate made the assertion previously, as seen in the original 10/03 presidential debate).
- A question and answer segment will occur at the end of the debate.
- Information will be presented briefly outlining the positions of several third party candidates including Jill Stein, Gary Johnson, and Virgil Goode regarding major issues.
- An e-mail sign-up sheet will be available for anyone who would like to be emailed more information/articles.
Please feel free to pass along this information to others who might be interested in attending or asking their students to attend.
You are welcome to contact Michelle Fisher (email@example.com) or me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions about this event.
Thanks for your support of this important social responsibility project.
