Product Description
This thorough DBQ asks students to analyze 9 primary and secondary sources to determine whether President Andrew Jackson was a democratic “man of the people”, a hot-tempered despot with no regard for laws and traditions, or something in between. Topics include his debatable status as a champion of the "common man" or that of a tyrant, as well as controversies about patronage and the spoils system, his treatment of Native Americans, and the National Bank. The activity includes a graphic organizer for students to analyze the documents, as well as a guide/rubric to help them organize their essay. If you wanted to save yourself and your students time, the documents and graphic organizer are valuable as an assignment on their own, without the essay.

Students would benefit from some background on Jackson before starting this activity. I suggest checking out any of my Andrew Jackson activities, especially "Andrew Jackson: Jacksonian Democracy - Good or Bad?" or "Andrew Jackson: Becoming President"
