Mrs. Burke’s Latin Classes Get In The Election Season Spirit

leave a comment »

To get in the spirit of the upcoming elections — and to gain experience writing sentences in Latin — all of the Latin students created campaign posters. They could chose either Obama or Romney for “consul” and create a poster explaining why that person should be elected. A few students supported fringe candidates or no candidate at all; but they still had to explain their reasoning. Negative campaigning was prohibited!! Each student began by writing sentences in Latin. After revising their work for grammatical correctness, they put the slogans onto a poster. The posters are on display outside Mrs. Burke’s room, where they will stay until after Election Day.
