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.

Political Party Leadership


This object with get your students familiar with the party leadership structure within both houses of congress.

Have your students choose one of the two main parties, either the Democrats or Republicans. Then research the party organizational structure. Create a Google Slideshow that consists of a slide for each level of party organization. Start with the national level, then state, county, city, town, etc.. Each slide should show where they meet, who the chairperson is for that organization and what kinds of things they are working on. Remember you are looking up the party organization, not the elected leaders.

Learning Targets: 
Understand that behind each of the two main parties there is a vast support structure that conducts fundraising and works on policy stances and other issues.
Identify who makes up that organization currently for the Democrats or the Republicans.
Construct organized slides that show party structure
