Students will culminate the unit on political parties with a debate on whether America should continue on with a two-party system or move to a multi-party system. To incorporate technology and an international aspect to the debate you will be participating with a classroom from Canada via Skype, a country that has a multi-party system. Both sides will be given a day to research and prepare their opening statements, main arguments and closing statements. On the day of the debate, each team will have a brief opening statement and then a longer period to layout their main supporting facts. The debate will close with a two-minute closing statement. There won't be a winner declared in an effort to maintain good relations with our neighboring country.
