Product Description
After students take a political spectrum quiz and/or complete the political platforms sheets (on my products page), students will be asked to start identifying with one of the two major political parties in America.

For this lesson students will:

1. Watch the "Crash Course Political Ideology" video on youtube (10 mins) and answer the questions at the top of the page
2. Chose a side on 5 political issues (such as death penalty), collaborate with their peers who hold similar views and create a mission statement for their party on this topic. They will record this on the sheet
3. Students are asked to answer a writing prompt involving political parties, listed at the bottom of the page.

In the day(s) following this lesson I have students debate on these topics and more. This conversation topics can also be found on my products page.

I strongly suggest using this activity/lesson with the other 2 activities mentioned (Political Platforms and Political Debate Topics)

Combining all 3 of these activities makes up a great political parties unit and should last you about 5-8 classes depending on your length of period.
