Current Political Struggles
The superpowers played a part in many revolutions or upheavals in developing nations. This unrest continues today as countries struggle to develop suitable political and economic systems.
Working with a team, create an oral presentation about a current political struggle or revolution. Using the Internet or magazines, research a current political conflict. Investigate the beliefs, programs, tactics, and popular support of the rival factions. Determine what the outcome of the struggle appears to be.
- Collect photographs, charts, artifacts, or other visual aids to illustrate the issues involved in the struggle.
- If possible, interview people from that country who have immigrated to the United States and include their viewpoints in your presentation.
