Alberta Votes 2019!
In Mr. Bjel's Social 30-1 class, students were given the opportunity to explore the various platforms of those parties seeking (re)election on April 16. They then partook in a mock election exercise, which was a useful experience for several students that were able to vote for the first time in this provincial election.
Although the class' prediction was not entirely accurate, it did mirror political perceptions and attitudes that are growing among the Albertan electorate.
In related news, Mr. Bjel spoke to the folks at 99.5 Drum FM about the importance of voting. His short interview can be found at this link.
