Lesson Plans and Resources for Teaching Transitions of Power: Inauguration Day

The 2020 election season and the surrounding events that unfolded will draw the curiosity of historians and the public for years to come, and the emotional toll it is taking on our country could not be more profound.

Educating for Democratic Citizenship
