So! You Want to Start Your Own Political Party?

Students examine the emergence of third parties in American politics during the first half of the 19th century. Working in groups, they research a Third Party and determine why the party was founded as well as who were instrumental in the party. After groups report their finding to the remainder of the class they participate in a class discussion.
