James Greenwood College,
Buenos Aires, Argentina
I am a Language and Literature, and Social Studies Sixth Grade teacher.
We did Literature Workshops, Photo Workshops and contests. I also instituted
and directed school trips and "inter-subjects activities" about
art and cinema.
Here we can see one of the activities I prepared for Social Studies: General
Elections for the Student Council. It is the first time not only for
the school but also for students. The whole process (from the creation of
the parties and platforms to the organisation of the balloting) is supervised
by sixth graders. The party elected did a good government, trying to follow
the promises made during the campaign. This was the way to experience the
importance of participating in the society as well as the decision-making
The Unión Cívica Colegial (LISTA 3) during the campaign. Their
platform: Save the Planet!

First Graders are ready to vote! A few of them are having "last minute
talks" to make a decision.

Who is going to win?
"My fellows Argentineans..." Mr. Juan Manuel Rodriguez Cortez,
new president of the student council, in his happiest ride.
