We're in the midst of the U.S. Election Project and would like to give you a brief update on what's happening in the project at the moment.
As the school year has now begun in all 16 German Bundesländer, more than 300 courses in Germany and the U.S. have embarked on the U.S. Embassy School Election Project! The students will be learning about central campaign issues and crunching data about their adopted state to make a prediction about its election outcome on November 3.
OCTOBER 1, 4:00-5:30 PM (CET)
STUDENT Q&A W/ DR. GOLDFIELD
Coming up, we will be hosting our first student Q & A with an American election expert on October 1! Dr. David Goldfield (Robert Lee Bailey Professor of History at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte), who also joined us in May for a teacher webinar, will give us a brief update on the election campaign and answer student questions. (see bio below)
Your students and you can register for the event here!
Students! You can submit questions before the webinar via our Facebook page, the Vitual Town Hall on Teach About U.S., and via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information on the event can be found in our Online Seminar section.
SIX WEEKS UNTIL ELECTION DAY
FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD...
The deadline to submit contributions to the school competition is October 25, 2020 (see our previous newsletter). A final online event will take place on November 2, the day before Election Day. More information on this event will follow in the coming weeks.
We have sent out updates for project participants in the past weeks and months. All these project updates can be found in our newsletter section.
We have exciting weeks ahead of us and look forward to your prediction of the election outcome. It is not too late to join the project!
