In this PBL or culminating project, students will research and discuss prominent election topics. Often, student’s political opinions are formed by those around them, parents and friends primarily. The aim of this lesson is to help student engage in the civil responsibility of informing themselves to have civilized and informed discussion with their peers - promote informed civil discourse. Students will begin by taking the World’s Shortest Political Quiz, move to research what each major party and a third party of their choosing stand for, and research current party leaders and their opinions to come to a consensus on their own political ideology. Finally, students will engage in a civil discourse on topics they have selected to discuss through their associated party’s opinion. Though this is a lengthy assignment, approximately 2 weeks, it is worthwhile to have student be informed about issues, political parties and institutions while engaging heavily in sourcing information.
