The Process of Electing our Leaders | U.S. Elections

It’s important that students learn about every aspect of the election process.

Your students want to learn and they love when given a chance to take charge of their learning! That is why My Teaching Library offers this U.S. Elections themed resource that will give them the opportunities they need to take charge, make decisions, collaborate and learn…all while creating a wonderful project!

This resource will give the students the opportunity to learn about different aspects of U.S. elections (both local and national elections) and at the same time give them choices as to what they want (or need) to focus on.

It will also give them the opportunity to choose how they want to work (alone or in a group) and how they present their findingsm using either a notebooking method or creating a lapbook. Of course, if you as the teacher, want (or need) to assign specifics and give them less control, you can do that as well. This resource is flexible!

Several informational text pages have been provided but students should be encouraged to read books and find other resources to gather information. Perhaps they can watch an upcoming televised debate. Perhaps they can attend a townhall meeting or interview someone.


  • Teacher pages for instructions, explanations and evaluations and more
  • Sample questions to get students ‘thinking’
  • Over 100 pages for students to select from when designing their projects! (These student pages have been created ‘in color’ but can easily be printed in b/w or grayscale to save $$$).

(Please note: If you are a MTL Download Club subscribing member, this resource is FREE!)

Have you visited the NEW website?

CHSH-Teach unveiled a NEW website over the summer and if you haven’t visited it yet, you will definitely want to do so!

Our History

My Teaching Library has evolved from very small beginnings. In 2010, a small site was created to help homeschooling families come together and support one another. It quickly became apparent that there was a need for quality, low-cost, educational material for these families. Lynda Ackert (the founder) was a veteran education of 20+ years and knew she could begin compiling and creating these materials and created the Download Club. As the site began to offer more materials, teachers outside the homeschooling community began to find and want access. The site grew and a company was formed: CHSH-Teach, LLC. Over the next several years, platforms changed and demand for materials increased. The company needed to expand, secure and create a space for everyone to find the educational materials they needed. Thus, My Teaching Library was created.

The Download Club

CHSH-Teach (and now My Teaching Library) is best known for the Download Club. The Download Club is a subscription membership that allows the members to have unlimited access to products, as long as their subscriptions are active. Non-subscribers will need to purchase all products individually.

Our Names

Because of our history, you may see “My Teaching Library” and “CHSH-Teach” used interchangeably.

What you will find on the NEW My Teaching Library

  • Quality educational resources for teachers and homeschooling families
  • Ability to purchase individual resources or choose to be a subscribing member and have unlimited access to all resources.
