Andrew Jackson Webquest. For years I would have students go through the Andrew Jackson webquest on the PBS web site, but all of a sudden PBS retired that site! From necessity comes innovation and I created my own webquest using the new Andrew Jackson Hermitage web site and various YouTube clips regarding Jackson's life.
This file is in Microsoft Word 2010 and is fully editable. Students will be able to type directly on the document and click on links to the various web sites.
NOTE: Please review the web sites in the PREVIEW of my product to make sure the sites are functional. All sites and clips were up and functioning at the time this product was created
This webquest takes students through Jackson's early life when he all of a sudden found himself an orphan at the age of 14, to his famous duel with Charles Dickinson, to the election of 1824 and the "corrupt bargain," to his fight to take down the National Bank.
Students will write mini-reflections and summaries in the text boxes provided which will allow them to read/view, process, analyze, and interpret the information they are discovering.
The final objective for students is to decide if Andrew Jackson, quite possibly our most controversial president, is worthy of being depicted on our national currency.
I enjoy students discovering information on their own with a little guidance along the way so they are able to successfully develop an understanding of our 7th president.
