WWE Smackdown Your Vote Videos
Cable in the Classroom is again teaming with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) to provide teachers with five short-form videos on issues important to the 2010 national elections. Use these videos to spark classroom conversations on critical topics such as: Economy & Jobs, National Security & War on Terrorism, Education, Health Care, and Environment & Energy Policy. The videos, hosted by WWE stars, convey the thoughts of college students attending Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York and are sure to grab students’ attention. The topics in each video are also covered in a national voter issues paper for voters ages 18-30 prepared by WWE, Cable in the Classroom, the League of Women Voters and others.
