|Who voted for this clown? Doh!|
Yesterday, we did a brief overview of the US election process, watched some clips of the campaigns and Obama's victory speech and then did some journaling. Here's a few of the things that made me smile.
"Obama was the best choice for president because if Romney won, he was going to shut down PBS." Nearly 1/4 of my students mentioned this. I did not ever talk about this in class.
"I learned that if you want to run for president, you need to have a lot of money, you need to be over 35 years old, and you need a really good speech."
"The process of becoming elected president is extremely complicated and costs a mountain of money."
"I'm glad Obama got elected. He seems really nice."
"It's good President Obama won. The other guy was going to get rid of Elmo."
Yeah, that's pretty much it in a nutshell.
