Homemade Political Parties

Use this 5-day lesson to clarify the platforms of the two major parties, comparing and contrasting against learners' 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.
