U of A / BHS Collaboration

Students in Mr. Walker’s 10th grade U.S. History course participated in a mock election as a part of a project with students from The University of Akron College of Education. The BHS students were divided as Democrats and Republicans, based on an interest survey they took at the beginning of the unit that represented their political views. Each party researched three issues, and the presidents presented their viewpoints. Following the presidential speeches, each party had an opportunity to ask questions that were answered by the presidents and vice presidents for each party.

Representing the Republicans were Austin Norman (president), Brooklin Brown (vice president), Nic Ellebruch (president) and Celeste Smith (vice president). Representing the Democrats were: Benjamin Groom (president), Brianna Hanshaw (vice president), Jordan Davis (president) and Dayna Winn (vice president).

The audience was made up of BHS and UA students as well as BHS teachers who voted to determine who presented the strongest arguments. The winners from 6th period were Ben Groom (president) and Brianna Hanshaw (vice president). The winners from 7th period were Jordan Davis (president) and Dayna Winn (vice president).

Jordan Davis, Dayna Winn, and Anthony Sickles, sophomores in Heather Weeks’’ CP English class, just finished reading All But My Life by Gerda Weissmann Klein, during reading workshop as a part of the collaboration with The University of Akron under the supervision of Dr. Hal Foster.
