Product Description
This is a great activity that really goes into great detail about the many differences between Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson yet remains student-friendly and engaging. I like to partner students into pairs, and have one do the reading/organizer for Hamilton, and the other for Jefferson. At this point, they will feel as though their Founding Father's opinions are well-founded, patriotic, and obvious. However, when they get together to compare answers on the topics with their partner, they will discover that the opposing perspective can also sound well-founded and patriotic! After learning both sides of multiple issues from the time period, students then compile a checklist to determine which Founding Father they agree with more, and uncover whether they are a "Hamiltonian" or a "Jeffersonian". This assignment is thorough, interesting, and engaging.
