PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This common-core standards-based lesson and project package is designed to serve as a foundation for teaching about the controversial presidency of Andrew Jackson. Using an .ppt or .key presentation about the major policies, events, and impact of Jackson, students center their thinking around the essential question: "Was Andrew Jackson a Hero or Villain?"

Following the main lesson, I have students research the presidency of Jackson online and generate a simple t-chart of evidence weighing his actions as heroic or villainous. They then complete a poster project, as guided by the directions and rubric, that showcases Jackson as a hero or as a villain using evidence from the lecture and their research. Last year, I had students make their posters on Piktochart.com and they looked awesome!

This .zip package includes:
.ppt Presentation Lecture
.key Presentation Lecture
.doc Graphic Organizer
.doc Project Directions with Rubric

*I used a font called "Politican" that is available to download for free from www.dafont.com.
