Abstract:

This presentation will address a problem-based learning exercise in which students assume the role of campaign staff for a house incumbent running for re-election. The campaign staff is representing an individual whose district has voted for the opposing party’s presidential candidate in the two most recent presidential elections. In addition to that challenge, the opponent of the student’s candidate in the general election is a potential political heavyweight, such as Oprah, Michael Moore, Colin Powell, or Lou Dobbs. Therefore, students are required to conduct opposition research, evaluate their opponent's strengths and weaknesses, as well as the strength and weaknesses of the incumbent, produce storyboards for three different types of political advertisements, and devise an overall campaign strategy.
