Chapter 4 - Political Parties Activity

Socratic Acrostic (there's an anagram for you)

  • The Socratic Method
  • Acrostics
  • You will be given a term for a political party or faction. Using the letters in your term, create an acrostic poem.
  • Also, to address the socratic method aspect of the activity, include at least two questions within the acrostic poem. These questions must pertain to the characteristics or traits of your political term. Be aware that the questions should stimulate critical thought and ideas that represent your political party or faction. These questions can also rhetorically address your oppositions' viewpoints or ideas.
  • The purpose of this activity is two-fold:
To work on memorization techniques that may expand studying skills
To help define and explain the characteristics, traits, and ideologues of certain political groups or factions
