Product Description

The product is a Google form linked to an interactive gallery on the presidential election of 1960 between Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy.

The election of 1960 gave Americans a clear choice between the policies pursued during most of the 1950's or a new political agenda for a new decade. It saw the largest voter turnout yet in the nation’s history and was also the closest election in nearly one hundred years.  

Students will complete the 5 reading comprehension questions and 9 descriptions to the candidate on the grid in the form. Then, students will compare and contrast, identify cause and effect, draw inferences, distinguish, and analyze data on the doc.

Students will learn about:

  • background of each candidate
  • characteristics of John F. Kennedy
  • voter concern for John F. Kennedy's religious beliefs
  • impact of the first presidential debate on television
  • support for civil rights leaders
  • election results
