Product Description
This is a fascinating and entertaining history of Andrew Jackson and his legendary temper and exploits, and how he somehow became President of the United States in 1828. I use it as an introduction to the man and the time period because it provides crucial context for the decisions and behavior Jackson demonstrated as President. Full of stories of duels, invasions, assassination attempts and more, this reading (with visuals) is so engaging that I often read it out loud with the class. To prove their understanding, students answer content and discussion/opinion questions, and then create 2 political cartoons demonstrating their understanding of competing perspectives on Jackson as President.

On my page I also offer a good DBQ about Jackson, the Indian Removal Act and the Trail of Tears, as well as shorter activities about his major decisions as President and a shorter activity about the Trail of Tears.
