The Midterm Elections: What are they? What's at stake? by Kristen McKenna at The Change Agent

http://www.nelrc.org/changeagent/extras/midtermelections.html

Midterm elections get decidedly less attention than the presidential elections, but they still determine many important factors about our government. This 12-page Change Agent “extra” explains everything you need to know about midterm elections; showcases historical data about voter turnout; charts the ways that the House, Senate and executive branch have split power between the two major parties; provides interesting graphics, slogans, vocabulary, and activities – all of which will help you engage students in content that is personally (and politically!) relevant!
