    AmGov Term1 Blk4 Mock Presidential Campaign

     
    On Tuesday, 17 Oct. 2017, Mr. Achs & Mrs. Bowe’s Blk4 AmGov class conducted a mock presidential campaign, a capstone project. This two-day event allowed students to experience how to run a political campaign, get a better understanding of the issues, and then participate in a real debate. Students worked in groups developing their political platform (ideology), 30-second TV commercial, campaign poster, and prepping their candidate for the debate. Mr. Achs & Mrs. Bowe were debate co-hosts, and the competition between the presidential candidates was fierce. Afterwards, each candidate summarized his/her position and made a final plea for votes. The class actually cast their vote by secret ballot, and the result of the presidential election was announced. Mr. Achs, acting as the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, then swore in the next President of the United States.
