How Well Do Our Parties Represent Us?
Students analyze primary sources to better understand the two-party political system in the United States through investigation of the manner in which political parties gained and nurtured constituents in the later 19th century and actions they took in the mid-20th century that brought satisfaction/dissatisfaction among constituents. After, students identify one significant reform either in electoral processes or at the party level that could result in greater responsiveness to the will of the people.
