Political Party Project

On November 25, 2019, in Assignments, by lwaddell

A political party is group of persons who seek to control government through the winning of elections and the holding of public office. In America there are many political parties. The two largest are the Democrats and Republicans.  For this activity you will be gathering information on political parties. You will need to select three issues, or planks from five different political parties. The planks can be anything that interests you, such as education, welfare, military spending, and taxes are just a few examples.

Requirements:

You will select three planks from five parties. The planks may be any topic that interests you.  You will create a visual representation of the planks from all five parties.  This can be a prezi, video, posters, or another form.  PowerPoint is not encouraged, think outside the box. It is highly encouraged that you use the Democrats and Republicans as two of your parties.  The other three are entirely up to you.

Here is a sample of political parties. This list is by no means the only parties that you may use. If you use a party that is not listed here you must include the web address in your paper.

Democratic National Committee
Republican National Committee
The Green Parties of North America
Communist Party USA Libertarian Party
