Video lesson plan for: American Party Animals

1920s American Culture: City Life & Values

More young people than ever identify themselves as politically “independent.” This animated film (narrated by Morgan Spurlock) looks at pros and cons of our two-party system, and at what makes it so hard for third parties to win power.
