This assignment is a great review of Linkage Institutions or could be used as a differentiated assignment. I actually used it as a quiz during a crazy week of school when students were in and out of class for various activities. Students will complete various tasks that allow them to apply their knowledge such as:
- Using demographic and political beliefs to advise fictional voters on where they fall on the political spectrum and which party they should support.
- Analyzing political cartoons to review key ideas of parties, third parties, interest groups lobbying and the media.
- Determining the type of propaganda used in political advertisements.
- Playing the iCivics game ACTIVATE to applying principles of citizens engagement, lobbying and linkage institutions.
