This short biography on Andrew Johnson compares his personality with that of his predecessor, Abraham Lincoln, and focuses on his disputes with Congress over Reconstruction after the Civil War. These clashes between Johnson and Congress ultimately resulted in his impeachment in February 1868.
The biography includes a series of questions based on the reading.
In using this in my own class room, students are encouraged to:
1. Number the paragraphs
2. Read the biography
3. Highlight answers in the reading
4. Use complete sentences.
The answer key demonstrates these steps.
