Senior Presidential Campaign 2018

Senior Presidential Campaign 2018

Mr. Chobanian’s American Government class was assigned to do their own presidential campaigns. There were different roles for the students to choose from: the presidential candidate, speech writers, campaign advertisement creator, negative campaign advertisement creator, party activists, campaign poster creator and lobbyist.
Each of the classes were assigned these same roles and were to campaign against the other half of the class.
Students and faculty from around the building were invited into the election and listened to each presidents speech, designed to be similar to the primary election, then they took a vote!

Izzy Yelle, Jacob Giesing and Calvin Cook! Congrats to all winners!!!

Jacob and Calvin will move on based on the percentage they won by. The general election will take place during callback one this coming Tuesday (12/11) in the auditorium. It will consist of speeches, political advertisements, and a question and answer-type debate with the audience!


Here are some photos from one of the campaigns today!

Our Interactive Library Bulletin Boards:

Four interactive bulletin boards have been set up in the library, and we hope to encourage all students to give them a try.

Students may work alone or in groups of 2-4 on these bulletin boards. Their answer cards should be put in the folders beneath the bulletin boards. Any cards that have full marks will be put in a box, and one winner will be drawn from among the correct cards for each category. The student or group of students who gets the highest total score out of 250 points will get an extra prize.

ALL OF THE INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND IN BOOKS THAT WE HAVE IN THE LIBRARY. NO COMPUTERS OR CELL PHONES MAY BE USED TO LOCATE THE INFORMATION NEEDED TO COMPLETE THIS PUZZLE.

Bulletin board 1 is called science. In the first column are pictures of 6 well-known scientists, and they are numbered 1-6. In column 2, the names of the scientists are given in random order, and in column 3, quotes attributed to each of the scientists are given in random order. The students have to number their cards (which are provided) from one to six, give the name of each scientist, and write the quote for which the scientist is known. Five points may be earned for each correct name, and five points for each correct quote for a total of 60 points.

Bulletin board 2 is called Shakespeare or Sherlock. Ten quotes are presented in the middle of the bulletin board. The students have to number their cards (which are provided) from 1-10 and tell whether the corresponding quotes are from a Shakespeare play or a Sherlock Holmes story. Two points will be given for each correct answer. EXTRA CREDIT-if the student can identify which story or play the quote comes from, he/she will earn an extra five points per correct identification. All Shakespeare plays and Sherlock Holmes stories are given on the bulletin board. A total of 70 points can be earned from this task.

Bulletin board 3 is called art. At the top of the bulletin board are six paintings from different time periods. The paintings are numbered 1-6. At the bottom left are the names of the paintings, in random order, and at the bottom right are the names of the artists, in random order. Students should number their cards (which are provided) from 1-6, tell the names of the paintings that correspond to each number, and the names of the artists that correspond to the paintings. Five points are earned for each correct title, and five for each correct artist, for a total of 60 points.

Bulletin board 4 is called math. This one may be a bit challenging. Six mathematical symbols are shown on the board. Some are well known, others a little obscure. The symbols surround a dial that tells their names. On either side of the bulletin board are cards telling the function of each of the symbols. In order to complete this activity, participants must match the symbol with its name and function. This bulletin board is worth 60 points.
