Presidential Election Year: Major Issues

Whether or not it's a presidential election year, this debate activity will spark research on current political issues. Split your government scholars into 4 groups and assign each a political party. One person will be the "candidate" running under that party's platform, and the rest of the group will serve as experts who research the candidate's stance to prepare him/her for the debate. Encourage candidates and teams to dress up for the debate and be prepared to create a fun atmosphere.
