Activity Overview


During any election, it's important to understand both sides and their beliefs. While studying the 1980 Presidential Election, students will find it helpful to compare and contrast the Democratic and Republican parties, namely Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter. Students will use a T Chart to highlight each candidate, their positions, ideas on foreign and domestic policy, and ideologies. From this, students will be able to analyze how and why each candidate fared the way they did politically and specifically during this election.


Extended Activity

Have students create a grid storyboard to detail what principles and ideas are a part of major terms like liberalism and conservatism. This will allow students to gain a better understanding of what exactly constitute the core ideas of each ideology and political position, and how these principles factored into the 1980 election.
