The U.S. Embassy Berlin and the U.S. Consulates General in Germany, our principal project partners Leuphana University Lüneburg and LIFE e.V., together with a number of local and state partners will conduct the U.S. Embassy School Election Project 2020 in the fall. This seminar will introduce potential participants and future teachers to the format, cutting-edge pedagogical approaches and educational technologies and include input from an American expert on the U.S. elections.
Due to concerns about the coronavirus and in order to enable a wider audience to participate in this discussion, we invite you to join us via webinar.
The U.S. Embassy School Election Project is designed to promote a better understanding of the U.S. presidential election process. The project links numerous schools in Germany with partner schools in the United States. Many teachers and students in Germany work with their American counterparts and through the Meet US program to research the political viewpoints in their particular adopted state. Students not only learn about the foundation of American democracy, they build one-on-one relationships with the people who form it.
The U.S. Embassy School Election Project was awarded the renowned Hans-Eberhard-Piepho Prize for Ideas in Communicative Language Teaching in 2013.
