Reflection 2020: A Moving Traditions Election Toolkit for Teens

Moving Traditions

Introducing Reflection 2020: A Moving Traditions Election Toolkit for Teens. The toolkit includes activities and discussion guides to help teens identify and manage feelings raised by the election; reflect on how gender is at play; and deepen connection to themselves and others through meaningful engagement. This resource was featured in The Jewish Education Project's CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY 2020 collection.

Moving Traditions has created this toolkit with activities and discussion guides for teens, and for parents and educators to meaningfully engage around the election. The Moving Traditions toolkit provides avenues for teens to engage with the election while authentically connecting with their feelings and decreasing stress. Our resources will help you and the teens in your lives to:  

  • Help anticipate and process the variety of feelings they may have before, during, and after the election as the next president is selected. 
  • Identify middot (Jewish approaches to character traits) to guide them. 
  • Reflect on how gender is at play during the election. 
  • Deepen connection to themselves and others through meaningful engagement.  

We have divided the toolkit into activities to do before the election and on election day itself—although of course you should do whatever works for you and the teens in your life.  We have also included discussion questions and activities that can be done at any time, before, during, or after!
