PowerPoint available at: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Mr-Raymond-Civics-Eoc-Academy This video teaches students about becoming and to a certain extent staying the President of the United States. Students will once again review the Constitutional requirements of becoming the president with a close look on the “natural born” requirement. There is then an in-depth look at how the Electoral College works. A breakdown of how the Electoral College gets its 538 votes and how a majority of 270 votes is required. The student will be introduced to the idea that they are actually voting for “electors” and not the President, and the electoral process of casting votes. There is also a discussion of why the Electoral College was put in place by the framers of the Constitution. Students will learn about the 12th Amendment as viewed by the Presidential Election of 1800, as well as the Bush v. Gore election about how a candidate can will the popular vote but loose the electoral vote. Also covered is what happens when no candidate receives a majority of the Electoral College votes, the 25th Amendment and Presidential Succession, and the Impeachment process. Like most of the videos on Mr. Raymond’s Civics EOC Academy this video ends with a review “quiz.” Remember that the PowerPoint in this video as well as a variety of lesson plans and activities are available at Teachers Pay Teachers. Mr. Raymond’s Civics E.O.C. Academy was designed for students taking the Florida Civics End-of-Course (EOC) Exam. However, as many states are implementing Civics Exams, these videos will work for all students of Civics, US Government, and US History. Currently students have to pass a civics state exam in order to graduate in Idaho, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Arizona, North Dakota, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah. These videos look at all of the civics benchmarks that will be tested on most state civics exams. As a civics teacher I have often looked for civics YouTube video clips to show my students. I hope these videos will serve as a supplement to lessons for civics teachers, US history teachers, US government teachers and their students. While they might be a little basic for AP Government students, they could serve as a refresher of basic concepts and content. I have also thought that these videos could help those who are going to take the naturalization test to become US Citizens. I have also been reached by parents whose children are taking Florida Virtual School’s (FLVS) Civics class.

In which John Green teaches you about Reconstruction. After the divisive, destructive Civil War, Abraham Lincoln had a plan to reconcile the country and make it whole again. Then he got shot, Andrew Johnson took over, and the disagreements between Johnson and Congress ensured that Reconstruction would fail. The election of 1876 made the whole thing even more of a mess, and the country called it off, leaving the nation still very divided. John will talk about the gains made by African-Americans in the years after the Civil War, and how they lost those gains almost immediately when Reconstruction stopped. You'll learn about the Freedman's Bureau, the 14th and 15th amendments, and the disastrous election of 1876. John will explore the goals of Reconstruction, the successes and ultimate failure, and why his alma mater Kenyon College is better than Raoul's alma mater NYU.

Your enthusiasm is great, but if you want to make your vote count, you'll need to know where to go and what to do. Step 1: Check yourself Triple-check your information. Put election day on your calendar, and use a site like canivote.org to confirm that you're actually registered. Then, check your state's website to make sure you know where your proper polling place is, how to get there, and its hours. Step 2: Call in patriotic Let your boss or professor know if you plan to vote before or during work or school hours. Since the voting process can take some time, giving a heads up to the powers that be can save you a lot of grief later on. Step 3: Bring documentation Bring documentation that will establish your right to vote. Each state’s regulations differ, so look up your local rules on vote411.org. Some places require you to present a government-issued ID, like a driver’s license or passport, while others will send you a voter ID card after you register. Tip Some places will let you use other documentation — like a utility bill, bank statement, or paycheck — as well. Step 4: Bring entertainment A lot of people want to make their voice heard, so you sometimes may need to wait for your turn at the voting booth. Bring along something to keep you entertained while you wait. Tip Polling lines usually peak early in the morning and late at night. If you'd like to avoid the wait, cast your ballot during off hours. Step 5: Do some research If you’re worried about how exactly you’ll be casting your ballot, visit "vote411.org":http://vote411.org to familiarize yourself with the methods available in your area. Your options might include an optical scan ballot, a mechanical lever machine, or a paper or electronic ballot. Tip Consult the army of voting day volunteers at the polling location if you have any questions. They'll be happy to help you. Step 6: Vote Arrive at your polling location, wait your turn, enter the booth, and cast your ballot. Democracy feels good, doesn’t it? Did You Know? In the 2000 presidential election, only 55% of voting-age Americans cast a ballot.

In which John Green teaches you about founding father and third president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson is a somewhat controversial figure in American history, largely because he, like pretty much all humans, was a big bundle of contradictions. Jefferson was a slave-owner who couldn't decide if he liked slavery. He advocated for small government, but expanded federal power more than either of his presidential predecessor. He also idealized the independent farmer and demonized manufacturing, but put policies in place that would expand industrial production in the US. Controversy may ensue as we try to deviate a bit from the standard hagiography/slander story that usually told about old TJ. John explores Jefferson's election, his policies, and some of the new nation's (literally and figuratively) formative events that took place during Jefferson's presidency. In addition to all this, Napoleon drops in to sell Louisiana, John Marshall sets the course of the Supreme Court, and John Adams gets called a tiny tyrant.

In which John Green teaches you about the election of 1860. As you may remember from last week, things were not great at this time in US history. The tensions between the North and South were rising, ultimately due to the single issue of slavery. The North wanted to abolish slavery, and the South wanted to continue on with it. It seemed like a war was inevitable, and it turns out that it was. But first the nation had to get through this election. You'll learn how the bloodshed in Kansas, and the truly awful Kansas-Nebraska Act led directly to the decrease in popularity of Stephen Douglas, the splitting of the Democratic party, and the unlikely victory of a relatively inexperienced politician from Illinois, Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln's election would lead directly to the secession of several southern states, and thus to the Civil War. John will teach you about all this, plus Dred Scott, Roger Taney, and John Brown.

In which John Green teaches you about the Progressive Presidents, who are not a super-group of former presidents who create complicated, symphonic, rock soundscapes that transport you into a fantasy fugue state. Although that would be awesome. The presidents most associated with the Progressive Era are Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft, and Woodrow Wilson. During the times these guys held office, trusts were busted, national parks were founded, social programs were enacted, and tariffs were lowered. It wasn't all positive though, as their collective tenure also saw Latin America invaded A LOT, a split in the Republican party that resulted in a Bull Moose, all kinds of other international intervention, and the end of the Progressive Era saw the United States involved in World War. If all this isn't enough to entice, I will point out that two people get shot in this video. Violence sells, they say.

Ezra Klein on the lesson of the 2016 presidential campaign: "A republic, if you can keep it." Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Donald Trump’s nearness to the presidency rests on two separate accomplishments — or, if you prefer, two separate institutional failures — that are often conflated. The first is his victory in the Republican Party’s presidential primaries. The second is his consolidation of elite Republicans, and of the Republican-leaning electorate. But it's important to zoom out, and make a structural analysis of what allowed these things to happen. And believe it or not, that’s where things get scary. For more on this weak-point in American democracy, read Ezra's longer version of this piece at Vox.com: http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2016/11/7/13532178/donald-trump-american-democracy-weakness Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

Hitler’s rise to power can be attributed to several factors which he used to his advantage to gain power legitimately. Germany's humiliating defeat during World War I was fresh in the minds of the German people and economic problems were hitting the country hard.

In which John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is.

In which John Green ACTUALLY teaches about the Civil War. In part one of our two part look at the US Civil War, John looks into the causes of the war, and the motivations of the individuals who went to war. The overarching causes and the individual motivations were not always the same, you see. John also looks into why the North won, and whether that outcome was inevitable. The North's industrial and population advantages are examined, as are the problems of the Confederacy, including its need to build a nation at the same time it was fighting a war. As usual, John doesn't get much into the actual battle by battle breakdown. He does talk a little about the overarching strategy that won the war, and Grant's plan to just overwhelm the South with numbers.

The Cold War was called cold because of the lack of actual fighting, but this is inaccurate. There was plenty of fighting, from Korea to Viet Nam to Afghanistan, but we'll get into that stuff next week. This week we'll talk about how the Cold War started. In short it grew out of World War II. Basically, the Soviets occupied eastern Europe, and the US supported western Europe. This setup would spill across the world, with client states on both sides.

Breaking News: Teacher’s Painting Of President Trump Goes Viral After Everyone Noticed One Major Detail In It Source and content: https://goo.gl/Ksm7sV Please subscribe and enjoy more: https://goo.gl/AI4MyX President Trump is known for a lot of things, not the least of which is controversy. Those who opposed his election seem to be more insulted every day by the fact that the campaign promises he made weren’t just empty platitudes. The vocal nature of the never-Trumpers gets louder every day, and those who support the President need to remember that our silence isn’t helping. For the most part, Trump supporters are those who work hard every day, and if something ain’t broke, we don’t fix it. Since the President is firmly in office, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of maintenance that needs to be done. However, the other side is working overtime to do anything and everything that could discredit our fairly elected President, and it’s time we stand up for him. At least one Alabama teacher understands that, and he did something that is making liberal heads explode. This teacher, who incorporates art in his everyday lesson plans, painted a portrait that is unmistakably respectful and honoring to the President of the United States. One of the reasons that it’s so perfect is the fact that it reflects the President’s love for America, something many Americans have been lacking in recent years. Local WKRG reported that the portrait was then sent to the President, which prompted a very personal letter in return: “Gulf Shores, Ala. (WKRG) — A work of art by a Gulf Shores teacher has drawn praise from the White House but criticism from some people on social media. Austin Boyd, a visual arts teacher at Gulf Shores High School, paints portraits of subjects as part of his lesson plan. His most recent work, a portrait of Donald Trump draped in the American flag, got the attention of President Donald Trump himself. Boyd sent the work to President Trump, who then sent back a signed letter applauding Boyd for being an innovative teacher and thanking him [for] sending the painting. In the letter, President Trump called it “fantastic” and said Boyd did a beautiful job. When Baldwin County Public Schools shared the story on Facebook, the post received a number of negative comments. Some people criticized Boyd for the presidential subject matter. Others were offended by the depiction of the flag.” The school was thrilled over the notoriety that their very own teacher received, and posted this on their Facebook page: “WAY COOL! Austin Boyd, teacher at Gulf Shores Middle, sent President Trump a painting that he created in class as a demonstration. Coach Boyd received a letter from the White House Historic Association and a private tour of the White House – and just a few days ago he received a personal letter from the President, which he actually signed! The ink bled through the paper. Editor’s note: Our Facebook page will not be used to bash students or our employees. It is primarily intended to showcase the outstanding work of our students and teachers. In this case, this outstanding teacher has portrayed multiple United States presidents and celebrities over the years and no matter one’s political philosophy, one should recognize the awesomeness of the artwork.” It might not be popular in a politically correct world to show respect to the President, but sometimes the right thing isn’t the popular thing, but we have to do it anyway. Even if we are shamed or castigated for it, and even if it’s not going to get us anything except a negative reaction. Working in a public school, this teacher was likely to get in all kinds of trouble for honoring the President, but he did it anyway. He was able to teach his kids two important lessons: do the right thing no matter what, and also that sometimes the right thing pays off in the short term. In this case, he received a signed letter from the President, thanking him for his beautiful tribute to the office of President, and to the nation. Dear Mr. Boyd, I was so touched Buy your thoughtful letter about your class assignment and your wonderful painting demonstrating spontaneous realism! I applaud innovative teachers like you who share their love of our country and appreciation for art with their students may your students continue to love learning and find inspiration to develop a lifelong appreciation for artistic expressionism, civic engagement, and patriotism. Mrs. Trump and I send our very best wishes to you and all the students and staff at golf Shores high school. Educating our youth is fundamental to the success of our nation. I am grateful that you encourage and inspire imagination, vision, and ingenuity in your students – our nations future leaders. Again, thank you for taking the time to send the fantastic painting to me. You did a beautiful job!

What, you may ask, is the Gilded Age? The term comes from a book by Mark Twain and Charles Dudley Warner titled, "The Gilded Age." You may see a pattern emerging here. It started in the 1870s and continued on until the turn of the 20th century. The era is called Gilded because of the massive inequality that existed in the United States. Gilded Age politics were marked by a number of phenomenons, most of them having to do with corruption. On the local and state level, political machines wielded enormous power. John gets into details about the most famous political machine, Tammany Hall. Tammany Hall ran New York City for a long, long time, notably under Boss Tweed. Graft, kickbacks, and voter fraud were rampant, but not just at the local level. Ulysses S. Grant ran one of the most scandalous presidential administrations in U.S. history, and John will tell you about two of the best known scandals, the Credit Mobilier scandal and the Whiskey Ring. There were a few attempts at reform during this time, notably the Civil Service Act of 1883 and the Sherman Anti-trust act of 1890. John will also get into the Grange Movement of the western farmers, and the Populist Party that arose from that movement. The Populists, who threw in their lot with William Jennings Bryan, never managed to get it together and win a presidency, and they faded after 1896. Which brings us to the Progressive Era, which we'll get into next week!

The Ivory Coast and Ghana are the world's first and second-biggest cocoa producers. Yet, many people there are so poor that they can never afford the final product, a bar of chocolate. In the Ivory Coast, more than half of the farmers and workers in the cocoa industry were living in poverty in 2017, as per reports from the International Cocoa Organisation (ICCO). This is partly due to an ongoing surplus in the global production of cocoa that resulted in a 58 percent price drop between August 2016 and May 2017. Both countries are still struggling to recover. The governments of the two countries have now decided to team up and attempt to secure a bigger share of the global chocolate profits with plans to coordinate production levels and sales policies. This may result in a price increase for the glossy end product and maybe even a potential dip in the net annual sales of global confectionary giants like Ferrero and Mars. Antonie Fountain is the managing director of the Voice Network, a group of NGOs and trade unions working together on sustainability in cocoa. He says that this recent announcement is no surprise: "Farmers [in the Ivory Coast] have seen their incomes reduced by 37 percent overnight. These farmers were already desperately poor and measures need to be taken to address the extreme poverty. The price crash was due - to a large extent - to overproduction and so the two major cocoa producing nations should work together to ensure that there is a higher cocoa price and managing the supply." But how much power can cocoa producers wrangle in an industry dominated by some of the world's biggest names in chocolate? "Ghana and the Ivory Coast together produce two-thirds of all the cocoa in the world. If they wanted to, if they make the right interventions, they could very much impact the situation of the world's cocoa market - at least in the short to medium term," says Fountain. The two countries are taking the first crucial steps towards making a difference by seeing each other as collaborators as opposed to competitors, with a long road to business integrity, trust and a better life for their cocoa farmers as the end goal. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/

The Republicans? Or, the Democrats? Most people would probably say the Democrats. But this answer is incorrect. Since its founding in 1829, the Democratic Party has fought against every major civil rights initiative, and has a long history of discrimination. The Democratic Party defended slavery, started the Civil War, opposed Reconstruction, founded the Ku Klux Klan, imposed segregation, perpetrated lynchings, and fought against the civil rights acts of the 1950s and 1960s. In contrast, the Republican Party was founded in 1854 as an anti-slavery party. Its mission was to stop the spread of slavery into the new western territories with the aim of abolishing it entirely. This effort, however, was dealt a major blow by the Supreme Court. In the 1857 case Dred Scott v. Sandford, the court ruled that slaves aren’t citizens; they’re property. The seven justices who voted in favor of slavery? All Democrats. The two justices who dissented? Both Republicans. The slavery question was, of course, ultimately resolved by a bloody civil war. The commander-in-chief during that war was the first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln – the man who freed the slaves. Six days after the Confederate army surrendered, John Wilkes Booth, a Democrat, assassinated President Lincoln. Lincoln’s vice president, a Democrat named Andrew Johnson, assumed the presidency. But Johnson adamantly opposed Lincoln’s plan to integrate the newly freed slaves into the South’s economic and social order. Johnson and the Democratic Party were unified in their opposition to the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery; the 14th Amendment, which gave blacks citizenship; and the 15th Amendment, which gave blacks the vote. All three passed only because of universal Republican support. During the era of Reconstruction, federal troops stationed in the south helped secure rights for the newly freed slaves. Hundreds of black men were elected to southern state legislatures as Republicans, and 22 black Republicans served in the US Congress by 1900. The Democrats did not elect a black man to Congress until 1935. But after Reconstruction ended, when the federal troops went home, Democrats roared back into power in the South. They quickly reestablished white supremacy across the region with measures like black codes – laws that restricted the ability of blacks to own property and run businesses. And they imposed poll taxes and literacy tests, used to subvert the black citizen’s right to vote. And how was all of this enforced? By terror -- much of it instigated by the Ku Klux Klan, founded by a Democrat, Nathan Bedford Forrest. As historian Eric Foner - himself a Democrat - notes: “In effect, the Klan was a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party.” For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/inconvenient-truth-about-democratic-party

Museo ni Emilio Aguinaldo, Barangay Kaingen, Kawit, Cavite June 12, 2018 President Rodrigo Roa Duterte hailed the patriotism of the country’s forebears as he joined the Filipino people in the 120th celebration of Philippine Independence Day at the Museo ni Aguinaldo in Kawit, Cavite. “Today, we remember our past filled with optimism for a future that we can proudly bequeath to the next generations of Filipinos. Indeed, the story of how our forebears fought for our sovereignty and established a Filipino nation shall forever inspire us to cherish the freedoms that we enjoy, all of us today,” he said. The President, together with National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) Chairperson Dr. Rene Escalante and Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief-of-Staff Lieutenant General Carlito Galvez, Jr., raised the Philippine flag at the historical balcony of Emilio Aguinaldo’s house as the celebration commenced with the singing of the Philippine national anthem. In his speech, he added that even though it has been a century since the country’s liberation from foreign subjugation, the country is still facing modern challenges of poverty, corruption, environmental degradation, terrorism, criminality, and illegal drugs. “I have made it my personal mission to rid our nation of these ills, but I cannot do it alone. At this crucial juncture in our history, we need to draw strength from the lessons of our past to ensure that these ills do not cause any more damage to our future,” he stressed as he urged the Filipino people to take part in nation building and development by practicing discipline as citizens of the country. Being firm on his stand to curb corruption in the country, the President vowed to eliminate corrupt leaders in the government. He also commended the unsung heroes of the law enforcement who sacrificed their lives for sustaining peace and security in the country against threats and terrorism, an example of which is the Islamic State (ISIS) which he considered as a “very virulent and toxic ideology” that does nothing but kill and destroy. “Our generation, and those who will come after us, will never be able to pay in full the debt that we owe to the heroes that founded this nation. The least that we can do is to see to it that the sacrifices they made, so that we may enjoy these freedoms, were indeed worth it. Today, we honor and remember the patriots who have given their lives in the name of liberty and freedom. As heirs of this great sacrifice, let us all be worthy of their legacy by leaving behind a nation,” President Duterte concluded. * * * Connect with RTVM Website: http://rtvm.gov.ph Facebook: www.facebook.com/presidentialcom and www.facebook.com/rtvmalacanang Twitter: @RTVMalacanang Google+: google.com/+RTVMalacanang

In which John Green teaches you about the presidency of Andrew Jackson So how did a president with astoundingly bad fiscal policies end up on the $20 bill? That's a question we can't answer, but we can tell you how Jackson got to be president, and how he changed the country when he got the job. Jackson's election was more democratic than any previous presidential election. More people were able to vote, and they picked a doozie. Jackson was a well-known war hero, and he was elected over his longtime political enemy, John Quincy Adams. Once Jackson was in office, he did more to expand executive power than any of the previous occupants of the White House. He used armed troops to collect taxes, refused to enforce legislation and supreme court legislation, and hired and fired his staff based on support in elections. He was also the first president to regularly wield the presidential veto as a political tool. Was he a good president? Watch this video and draw your own conclusions.

On January 26, 1950, India became an Independent Sovereign Democratic Republic with its own Constitution. The Constitution of Independent India that came into being that day was the culmination of a journey that had begun during the first war of Independence in 1857 when Indian soldiers (rebelling against British colonial rule) attempted to frame their own Constitution. Later, during the freedom movement of the early 20th century, a seminal attempt to create a Constitution was made under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi. Eventually, a Constituent Assembly consisting of about 300 men and women representing various shades of political opinion and different parts of the country congregated in the Central Hall of Parliament on December 9, 1946. Their task was to frame a Constitution for a free India. The Assembly took close to three years to create the Constitution that defines and guides our nation today. The story of making Independent India's Constitution is full of drama and excitement. It took place during momentous times that changed the political contours of South Asia. It was a near impossible task of transforming a diverse, heterogeneous country into a unified nation. Samvidhaan is the untold story of how the Constitution of the largest Democratic Republic in the world was created.

What do you do, when you’re a dried up old porn star, who was supposed to be the “key” to taking down President Trump, but you’ve been proven a hoax and a scam artist? Why, you pull another stunt and say you’re going to run for President to get some PR! Welcome to Stormy Daniels sad, washed-up life. From Daily Wire Porn “star” Stormy Daniels says her claims that she had an affair with President Trump are not political, declares she’s a Republican, and even muses about whether she should run for president in a lengthy interview with the Chicago Tribune. “This didn’t start with a political agenda,” she told the Tribune on Saturday afternoon as she lounged on a seat of her tour bus in a parking lot in Rosemont. “I think it’s really funny that most people don’t even know that I’m Republican. “They make it political in the same way that they have to put porn star in front of my name,” she added. “If I was a librarian, it wouldn’t be: Librarian Stormy Daniels.” Daniels, 39, was in the Windy City for a three-night, five-show stand at the Admiral Theatre as part of her nationwide stripping tour dubbed the “Make America Horny Again” tour. Daniels claims she had sex with Trump after meeting him at a celebrity golf tournament in 2006. “The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen arranged a $130,000 payment to Daniels, sent before the 2016 election to keep Daniels from revealing an alleged sexual encounter,” the Tribune says. In the interview, Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said she didn’t vote in the last election (shocker). And she goes on to say she “might win” if she ran for president. She said she thinks every day about the legacy she could leave for her daughter. She wants to inspire other people to stand up for other people, she said. “What about the bigger picture?” she said. The White House did not respond to Tribune requests for comment Saturday evening. Daniels does not think she alone can shut down the Trump presidency. “Do I have the power?” she asked. “Absolutely not.” And then she added: “I think that they’ll be their own downfall if that happens.” Daniels said she has no plans to run for office. It’s ridiculously expensive to run a campaign and the person best suited to represent the people probably would never get elected, she said. But at the end of the interview, she said, “I don’t know, should I run for president?” A laugh. And then: “The terrifying thing is I might win.” ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ◆ Latest news videos: https://goo.gl/BmTYua ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ★ CONNECT WITH US ★ ◆ Google+: https://goo.gl/HHKysp ◆ Email: firstname.lastname@example.org ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Videos can use content-based copyright law contains reasonable use Fair Use (https://www.youtube.com/yt/copyright/)

Mr Speaker, John Bercow MP, and the Lord Speaker, Lord Foster, invite pupils to take part in our new project Pupil Parliament! Pupil Parliament is a news report and speech writing resource created with literacy charity A Tale Unfolds. The resource includes videos, lesson plans and interactive whiteboard slides. The Write Brothers lead pupils through the process of reporting, while raising an important issue with an MP or a member of the House of Lords. Then, pupils become MPs or members of the Lords themselves by writing and recording their own ‘speeches to Parliament’. Filming is simple: you only need one tablet (or any device with a camera) to bring this project to life. Show your class how they can make a difference! Enter your pupils' films into the politics category of primary school film festival LitFilmFest 2018. There, they could see their video projected onto the big screen. Pupils can even win a YouTube filming day for your school! To download the resource for FREE, visit https://ataleunfolds.co.uk/shop/pupil-parliament/.
