First of all, read the statements on your own. Taking turns state your opinion about each one, suggest improvements and then briefly justify your changes. <br />
  82. 82. Homer Votes activities: critical thinking<br />82<br />Most of the countries in the world are democracies because democracy is the best form of governmental system in the world.<br />It’s almost impossible to change major policies of a country. So voting does not really make a difference. <br />
  83. 83. Homer Votes activities: critical thinking<br />83<br />Major political powers of the world should make democracy prevail with any means possible. <br />Most politicians abuse the power people assign them.<br />
  84. 84. Homer Votes activities: critical thinking<br />84<br />We are living in an age of technology. People do not have enough time, so e-voting should be an option. <br />Non-democratic countries are a threat to the security of the world. <br />

  89. 89. Homer Votes activities: personalization<br />89<br />Talk to someone who is running or has run for office/candidacy for a position. Ask him/her questions about the important procedures they went through for being able to run for office and their feelings along the process. Take notes. <br />
