The purpose of this lesson is for students to completely
understand the importance of gerrymandering in the realm of political
geography. Often social studies educators are criticized because our
content material does not link to other courses. Here is a perfect
starting point to link geography and government/civics. Students will come
to understand how certain racial or ethnic groups have been taken advantage of
in the past as well as the present day. Finally, students will redistrict
the state of Mississippi as a culminating activity.
