Adult Basic Education students teach mini lessons about elections in their countries

November 8, 2018

On Election Day, Adult Basic Education students presented mini lessons to their classmates and students from Concordia College.

A partnership this fall paired an ABE class with a Concordia College class. The election-day session was designed for the Adult Basic Education students to be the teachers and have the Concordia College students learn from them.

ABE teacher Rebecca Lee-Hunt had her students write about elections in their countries. The ABE students presented information about elections in Iraq, Somalia, Congo, Kurdistan and Chad, including details like having a Parliament that votes for the president or inking a finger to indicate a resident has voted and can’t vote again.

The students compared elections in their countries and elections in the United States as they discussed topics like political parties and political advertising.
