PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a two-page (classwork and homework) worksheet that invites students to think about Andrew Jackson's presidency and especially about the effects of the Trail of Tears for the Cherokee Indians. On the class work students reflect on Jackson's decisions and actions during his presidency and explain whether or not they reflected the spirit of democracy. Then, for homework students write as Cherokee Indians: 1) a protest letter to President Jackson explaining why they consider his policy of Indian removal to be unjust and 2) a journal entry describing their painful journey to their new home.

I would like to thank you for the great worksheet. This adds analysis and information, which is always a plus! All the information is relevant and concise. I appreciated that you could also use this a review for the test. In fact I had the kids remove it from their interactive notebook and put it in their state test review folder, that we make for our big end if he year test. Which says how confident I am with the material.

Thorough coverage of the major issues in Jackson's presidency. Love how it is broken up into a classwork and homework assignment, although that could be tweaked as needed.
