To analyze the presidential elections which led to the rise of the Jacksonian Democrats.
1 and 1/2 class periods
Give each student a copy of pages 62A - 62E.
Read with the class the background information about the Election of 1824. This includes three sections entitled The Candidates, The Campaign, and Election Results. Then, have the students complete the map exercise on page 62B. This involves taking electoral results from a chart and recording them on the map using four different colors or markings (one for each candidate). I provide my students with colored pencils and they really enjoy this activity.
Do the same for the Election of 1828.
Next, there are 30 questions pertaining to the background information and map exercises that the students just read and completed. These questions can be assigned for homework. Questions 1-15 are on the Election of 1824. Questions 16-30 are about the Election of 1828. Go over the answers at the beginning of the next class period.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
