In Praise of Political Parties
Author: Kris J. Hizal
Students must decide which political party they will join or if they will register as an independent. Student groups will be analyzing one current political party and making a presentation to the class about this party’s solutions for the problems that confront the U.S. today. Groups must strive to ensure that all information presented is current and accurate.
- To expose students to as many political parties as possible.
- To encourage students to register to vote.
- To increase student participation in our democratic process.
- To demonstrate the link between an underlying philosophy about the role of government and the nature of people and the positions that political groups hold.
