Get your students thinking about the Political Spectrum and focus their efforts with a prediction guide, T-Chart, and follow up questions. The prediction guide has them make educated guesses about the spectrum, while the T-Chart and follow-up questions combines their previous knowledge and beliefs with the actual definitions of liberal and conservative. Students will have fun identifying aspects of society that are liberal and conservative, before understanding what those terms mean. This 2 page package is a great way to start off your unit on political beliefs and values. At the end of the unit, use the "post" area of the prediction guide as an informal assessment.
