Product Description
Sometimes it is difficult for students to understand The Age of Enlightenment, the beliefs of the philosophers, and the impact the Enlightenment had on the United States. This project places the Emlightenment thinkers within a Presidential campaign in which they all share their beliefs and compete to win the popular vote.

This is a 3-4 day group project where students research one philosopher and create a political campaign that portrays their philosopher's beliefs.

Each group member has a role. (There is a campaign manager, assisant manager, the candidate/philosopher, biography specialist, and a propaganda manager.) The group will present two speeches and two posters. If your classes are smaller or you prefer smaller groups, it is easy to eliminate the assistant, biography specialist, or propaganda manager.

The assignment also contains a rubric for easy grading.

The assignment does not specify which philosophers will be researched. Due to varying state standards, I leave that up to you to decide.

My students were encouraged to go above and beyond the requirements to make their campaign most appealing, which many did.
