8th Grade French Class Studies Les Élections Présidentielles 2022
As the French conducted first-round voting for their next president, so did the 8th Graders in Mme. Albino's French Class!
After reading about each of the 12 candidates and their school reforms, each student chose a candidate to represent. Next, the students researched their candidate's platform and stances on immigration and the environment before presenting their findings to their fellow classmates (some of whom did it in costume!) tout en francais, illustrating why they should vote for them.
Emmanuel Macron, Valérie Pécresse, Anne Hidalgo, Philippe Poutou, Yannick Jadot, Éric Zemmour, and Marine Le Pen appeared in class, and after all the presentations, students compared each candidate before voting for the first round. Macron and Hidalgo prevailed as the top two winners!
