The Wacky
Smear Campaign

pretending any person, place, or thing could run against another in an election, and helping both sides campaign

This wacky activity was featured in the Northern Nevada Writing Project's Going Deep with Compare and Contrast Thinking Guide.

This writing activity was inspired by Barry Lane's book, 51 Wacky We-Search Reports. In Nevada, Barry's book has been teaching us to help students think deeply about learned content as they learn to put ideas in their own words.
