Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

In 2016, a billionaire businessman and the first woman nominated by a major party ran against each other for president of the United States. In very different ways, both candidates approached the presidency as outsiders, reaching beyond the traditional boundaries of US presidential politics. As outsiders, the 2016 candidates are noteworthy, but not unique; indeed, the 2016 race resonates with the legacies of outsiders who have come before. This exhibition explores the rich history of select individuals, parties, events, and movements that have influenced US presidential elections from the outside‰ÛÓoutside Washington politics, outside the two-party system, and outside the traditional conception of who can be an American president.

This resource guide begins by outlining the theory underlying the literacy work and then lays out the framework for the supports included in the Readers series. Subsequent chapters describe and illustrate the specific content literacy and language development strategies that have been chosen as being of particularly high impact. Although most of the strategies can be used in multiple ways, we have chosen to present them as occurring "Before, €During€ and After Reading" because of the importance of this mental model in effective content literacy instruction.
