PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

**This file has been revised w/updated video links - October 2014**

Should Jackson be removed from the $20 bill? That is the guiding question of this internet webquest. Students will take charge of their learning by visiting ten different websites covering the following topics:

1. Andrew Jackson Introduction
2. Interesting Facts about Jackson
3. Election of 1828
4. The Nullification Crisis
5. The Bank War
6. The Indian Removal Act/Trail of Tears

The websites are varied to engage the students in finding out information to answer the guiding question. They will be reading passages, watching short videos and analyzing maps and political cartoons.

The culminating activity for this web quest is an editorial in which students argue whether or not Jackson should be removed from the $20 bill. They must cite text-based evidence from the web quest to support their opinion. In the past, I have counted this editorial as a quiz grade for the unit.

A teacher answer key is included.

Teacher notes: Generally I have signed up to use my school's computer lab for three days for this assignment. The first two days the students spend working on the web quest and the third day is for writing the editorial.
