The American election 2020 will take place on the 3rd of November and media is reporting about the two candidates on a daily basis; the present Republican president Donald Trump and the Democratic Party nominee Joe Biden.


You are going to learn about the American election system and the two competing candidates. Improve your source criticism. Create you own wordlist with useful words. At the end you'll write an essay on critical thinking.



We are going to do the following tasks:



  • You are going to create a mindmap and write down all the things you know about the two candidates
  • You work in your own list of words in your notebook


  • Listening activities
  • Watch videos 
  • Read articles
  • You are going to learn how to search facts in different sources
  • You will learn to evaluate digital sources
  • Write an essay



Answer the questions and do the tasks  in your Google Classroom 


Make your own ”Golden list of words”  that means you write down useful words and phrases in your personal notebook.
