Meghan Gets Involved in the Campaign
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 "Wow," said Meghan as she looked around the large room they had just entered. "Look at all the posters and phones!"
2 "Can I help you?" a young woman asked.
3 "Yes," said Mr. Edwin. "We're here to find out how to get involved in the campaign."
4 "That's wonderful," she said, reaching out her hand to welcome Mr. Edwin. "My name is Karen."
5 "Hi, Karen," said Mr. Edwin. "This is Meghan. She's going to be studying presidential campaigns in school. I thought maybe we could get some firsthand experience."
6 "Hi, Meghan! What are you interested in doing?" asked Karen.
7 "What is there to do?" asked Meghan.
8 "Oh, my!" said Karen, smiling and raising her hand to brush back her hair. "There are many things to do. You can pass out flyers, put up lawn signs, take a bumper sticker for your car, answer phones, and I could go on and on."
9 "I think we'll take a bumper sticker for our car, a lawn sign, and some flyers to hand out," said Mr. Edwin. "That would be a good start."
10 "Okay. I'll get them for you," said Karen, turning to walk away.
11 "Is that all a campaign does?" asked Meghan.
12 "No. But that's what the campaign workers here do. It helps to get the candidate's name and message out to the people in our area."
13 "What does the candidate do?" asked Meghan.
14 "He spends most of his time traveling to different states and making speeches. He also takes part in debates. I'm sure there will be one on television that we can watch."
