Your poster should be creative and contain more symbolic representation than words.  Think of creating a political piece of propaganda that displays the ideals of the political philosophy as related to the flashpoint.  Below is a simple image from the 2008 US Presidential Campaign. NOTE: you will most likely need more than one word to display all that you need to accomplish this task. 


Gallery walk all 13 posters.  Take notes in a Venn diagram.  Place each of the flashpoints in the appropriate circle.  What trends do you notice in the data?  Think geography, chronology, demography, history, economics, etc.
