This is a one page summary of George Washington's Farewell Address. It is NOT meant to be a complete summary as that could take several pages. It is meant to give students an introduction to three main points in the address - National Unity, Political Parties, and Foreign Alliances.
After reading, students will answer 9 questions. The first of which asks students to explain the meaning of a quote at the top of the page. The remaining include primarily "thinking" questions.
This can be used as a class assignment or as homework. If used in class, allow time to have a discussion about the final question on the handout that allows kids to compare some ideals of the Address with today's current political/world climate.
This product is included in my "US History Summary Reading Bundle".
Check out my store for a product (George Washington: Setting Precedents and Farewell Advice) that includes this summary along with a PowerPoint and graphic organizer that discusses Washington's presidency.
