Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Impact of Political Parties by Decade


This will be a culminating project for your students to show political party impact by decade.
Assign your students a partner and have them choose one of the two main parties and prepare a google slide show that shares one or two key issues that the party was tackling that decade and one or two key figures from each decade from 1950 on. One slide for each decade, so one for the 1950's, one for 1960's, and so on. Keep the issue brief and limit them to a few bullet points per decade and a picture or two of the key figures of the decade for that party.

Learning Targets: 
Understand the impact that the political parties have had over the decades
Realize that one party often dominated the policy of a certain decade
Familiarize yourself with key figures in the Democratic or Republican party throughout the last decades
