America as it currently exists is over, and now students have to come up with their own societies. They can choose between creating a society based on the values of a Transcendentalist or a Dark Romantic. They are given instructions on what is required for their society, and they have to create propaganda to present to the class in an attempt to convince people to move to their society.
This product includes the assignment instructions, an outline for students to use, and a rubric.
I have been using this project in class for a few years, and the students always have fun creating their own societies.
