American Political Culture

Examine American political culture with your scholars using this self-assessment lesson plan. Individuals rate a list of 14 values from highest to lowest, including ideas such as financial security, right to private property, justice, self-reliance, etc. Create a final class ranking once pupils have finished. This leads nicely into a study of party platforms. Consider extending by having pupils poll parents, then compare rankings of adolescents and adults.
