Description:

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 an intercultural blended-learning program promoting democratic engagement and civil discourse in the context of the U.S. presidential campaign. Our goal is to provide participants with evidence-based information and analytical tools to predict and evaluate the election outcome of an adopted state. Teachers and students research and understand competing viewpoints and political arguments. This project promotes respect, civility and open-mindedness as the basis for intercultural engagement.

The U.S. Embassy School Election Project was awarded the renowned Hans-Eberhard-Piepo Prize for Ideas in Communicative Language Teaching in 2013.
