I love teaching this unit on the political spectrum and have used it multiple times with great success in government and history classes. This awesome unit includes:
* a diagram of the political spectrum and descriptions of traits associated with the five major political views.
* three worksheets for reinforcement and discussion
* a 20 question test based on the worksheets.
* Answer keys are for worksheets and the test.
By the time kids finish all of this and we discuss in class their test scores are very good.
Everything is short answer, matching or multiple choice. The test is entirely multiple choice.
There may be some disagreement with the answers I have provided and this disagreement is a good source of discussion and debate when students complete the worksheets together and again reviewing the answers with students as a class.
