Homemade Political Parties

Use this 5-day lesson to clarify the platforms of the two major parties, comparing and contrasting against high schoolers' beliefs. Begin by looking at unlabeled summaries of both party platforms, having learners identify most with one. Groups create their own parties through the democratic process. Each platform must be signed and presented. Finally, students return to major platforms, determining if their choice has changed. Consider including some minor parties in this process.

I have used several hands-on lessons that have helped to engage my students in topics that may have been mundane to them. I do not have a text book or resources for many of the topics that I teach, and it is nice to find so many resources in one place.
