Product Description
Andrew Jackson Document Analysis

Aim: Identifying positives and negatives of Jackson's presidency

Included in this resource:
• Cover Page
• (8) primary/secondary source documents with scaffolding questions and outside information graphic organizers
• Application/Closing/Higher Order Thinking Questions

Students will analyze the primary/secondary source documents that describe aspects of Andrew Jackson's presidency. Students will complete the scaffolding questions based on the documents and their knowledge of Social Studies. They will brainstorm two pieces of outside information pertaining to each document topic.

Adheres to Social Studies Common Core Standards - research, application, literacy, vocabulary, analyzing primary source documents, creating arguments with evidence

Differentiation: cooperative {students may work in pairs/groups according to teacher's discretion for scaffolding questions}; students argue their opinions and make predictions using relevant examples and details from the lesson and their knowledge of social studies.

★ Note - You can use this lesson as a document activity. I post the documents around the room and have the students travel in groups, OR you can use the documents for a jigsaw activity.

For more information on how to execute a jigsaw activity with your class, email me at :)
