With mixed feelings in – with joy and new knowledge out: the workshop on the elections in the United States- more than just a lecture!
Friday the 30th of October, just days before the actual US elections, our teachers invited the Amerika Haus NRW to our school in order to give us some insight into the US election system. We only expected a presentation explaining the elections in the United States. However, It was much better than we had expected! The fact that we were allowed to take action and were given many tasks not only kept us busy but made it easy to follow along and understand the pros and cons of the US system.
With kindness, openness and comprehensible language we were taken from the beginning and our attention aroused. Playfully we were involved in the workshop. Whether questions, role- games or a visual presentation: we were always able to bring in our own ideas and there was no time to get bored.
Through the final quiz we were able to apply what we learned and summarize it – It was a worthwhile event which will remain in our memories in the future.
