This project allows students to work in groups and discover the process of conducting polls for public opinion in the United States.
It includes the overview of the project with expectations for each day, and a rubric to assess the final video that includes their findings and the greater meaning of the poll.
My students have greatly enjoyed this project, as it allows them to be an investigative researcher, and gives them choice to select a hot topic they connect with. The project can last one to one and a half week, or it can be condensed into a shorter assignment that doesn't involve a video creation.
It fits nicely into the Public Opinion for AP US Government, but can also fit nicely into any government or civics course.
