Unit IV Government Independent Assisgnment

Independent Learning Performance Task
Directions: You are going to create a Prezi, commercial (IMOVIE or MovieMaker), or other type of media presentation that shows your deep understanding of the government of your OWN COUNTRY! That’s right, you are going to create your own independent country.
Please read ALL DIRECTIONS BEFORE GETTING STARTED!
What to include:
• You must title your country. It must reflect the culture of the country you are creating.
• You must create a flag for your country that represents the culture and identity of your country
• You must create a form of government for your country. You must pick from Monarchy, Theocracy, Presidential Democracy, Parliamentary Democracy, Constitutional Monarchy or Dictatorship.
• You must correctly identify the leader
• You must correctly demonstrate how the leader gains power
• You must correctly explain how the citizens in your country will participate, is it autocratic, democratic or oligarchic?
(Make sure your government leader and citizen participation and other freedoms/rules match the form of government you chose)
• You must create a constitution for your country. It has to include 10 fundamental rights. (YOU can have fun here, but also think what rights you think people should have)

Essentially you are creating a “GUIDE” for your country. You are explaining the details of your country so that visitors will know what to expect upon their arrival to your country. Along with your guide you are creating a 2 minute commercial that advertises your country so other people will know about it.

Check out http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english.html to see what type of information countries post about their country as a starting point. When you visit the page click the “Country Information” heading at the top and select a country to read about.

Also look at the https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/ as another resource to understand the type of information I am looking for.

The goal is for you to design a FUN, CREATIVE AND ENTERTAINNING presentation that informs people about your country. Have FUN WITH IT! YOU ARE NOW THE LEADER of your OWN country. DESIGN it! Put yourself in a leader’s shoes and decide how you would lead and what you would want the ideal country to have.
