PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Influence of Political Parties on Elections and Elected Officials explores not only the current state of our political structure, but also how we got to this point. The student will learn that throughout American History two opposing beliefs systems have existed. This unit describes these oppositional systems, their evolution and change through American History and as well as the role of minor parties such as The Greens and the Libertarians.

In addition to the unit plan, there are extra projects and extensions for students’ participation. Some of these include small group work, a letter-writing project to a founder and so on.

Objectives of the unit are:

• Students will be able to identify the two major parties, the Democrats and the Republicans, and their basic principles.
• Students will discuss critically the role of minor parties.
• Students will explain clearly the influence of principles and ideology and their power on each of the parties.
• Students will articulate the major divisions in the ideology of American political philosophy.
