PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity explores the impact of television on politics in the United States. It can be used to teach the influence of the media on politics, the importance of non-verbal communication, or be used to show the power of preparing for a speech.

Many teachers use the debate between Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy to show the impact of television on politics in the United States. People who listened to the debate on the radio thought that Nixon won the debate, while people who watched the debate on TV thought that JFK won.

This activity gives your students a chance to experience the difference felt by people listening to and watching the debates.

The product includes instructions on the activity, a link to a video of the debate, and two worksheets.

The activity is aligned to VA SOL GOVT.6 d), CE.5 c), and CCSS RH.6-8 1, 2 and 3.

Pair this up with the Fundamental Principles of U.S. Government Activity Bundle! or the Organization of Congress Prezi - Includes YouTube Video! to meet the $3 TpT checkout minimum!

When you leave feedback on paid products (like this one) you will receive credit toward future TpT purchases!
