A fun way to teach your students about different political systems.
Students can work independently or in groups to research four different kinds of political leadership: dictatorship, monarchy, theocracy, democracy.
They need to find information about the following topics:
Rise to power: How does this type of leader get chosen (election, by force, by birth, etc.)?
Actions: What does this type of leader do when in power (make laws, censorship, propaganda, make trade deals with other countries, provide spiritual guidance, etc.)?
Known associates: Who does this type of leader work with (members of parliament, advisors, nobles, priests, etc.) or do they work alone?
Ancient examples: What ancient civilizations had this type of leader? What was the leader’s name and what did they do?
Current examples: What current countries have this type of leader? What is the leader’s name and what do they do?
Pros: What is good about having this kind of leader?
Cons: What is bad about having this kind of leader?
