Product Description
"Was Jackson successful at balancing sectional and national interests? Were Jackson's actions as president democratic or undemocratic?"

Using EIGHT topics throughout Andrew Jackson's presidency, students research and evaluate the president's actions from the point of view of sectionalism and nationalism. Students use their critical thinking skills and their knowledge of the time period to determine who had their interests met, or who did not.

Also students have to decide whether or not the actions taken by the president were democratic or undemocratic, in the context of our American values established by the Founding Fathers.

Use this as a single period (including research, 90 minutes) or multi-period project. Use it to be the basis for an essay in the future, or larger argument. Use it for a comparison tool to other presidents. There are lots of ways to take this assignment and build on it!
