This project is one in which students will explore the beliefs of political parties and create their own, based on their knowledge of the US two party system. In this project, students will name the party and create a symbol, as well as choose five political issues on which to take a stance. Finally, students will write a persuasive, one-paragraph speech about their platform. This can be done with pencil and paper or can be converted to a computer-based project. This project was created for students to work in cooperative groups.
