Each of the following statements in this activity were taken from the Republican and Democratic party platforms, or are modifications of the original content. Students must circle which party they believe each statement belongs to, based on what they know about the values of each party. Then, they must decide on a scale of 1-10, how much they agree or disagree with the platform statement. Each group of boxes is based on a specific issue, i.e. environmental issues, health care, education, gun control. I usually have them complete this activity in groups and then discuss as a class.
