A general election is going to be held in the English class.Our 1ºESO and 2º ESO students ,inmersed in cooperative learning,are going to the polls in two weeks and they are about to vote for the student they’d most like to represent them in Parliament.
Before the election,each team has to …
1. Choose a name for their party,
2.Choose their candidate
3.Write their manifesto and decide which campaing activities they will undertake to help publicise the ideas and policies in their manifesto.
4.Elections and voting.
Learning to debate helps to equip students for a life that will be filled with challenging decisions.That’s why I want to encourage debating in my classes .Students will learn to practise their debating skills,form opinions,justify their viewpoints ,listen to and learn from others,etc.
