In November 2008, the United States of America will elect a new President. During their party conventions in August and September, the Democratic and Republican party will decide on their respective candidate. Audiences at home and abroad have been following the decision making process with great interest.

Leading up to the Presidential Election 2008, the U.S. Embassy in cooperation with LISUM has invited Berlin and Brandenburg schools to participate in a school program involving a teacher training seminar and a two-week school project.

Please find resources and information material on the project below.

The Research & Information Service (IRC) of the U.S. Embassy has collected information material on the U.S. Presidential Elections which can be found here:
