This is on Thomas Jefferson and the paradoxes of his presidency. He starts by attempting to dismantle Hamilton's plan for expanding the federal government, but then doubles the size of the USA when he buys the Louisiana territory from Napoleon. This requires an expansion of federal and executive power. The BFU also details the beginning of the idea of Manifest Destiny and the journey of Lewis and Clark. It covers all and more of the tested standards, includes several map questions that reinforce the oft-tested Louisiana Purchase question, and introduces students to some non-content vocabulary such as ironic and dismantle.
My BFUs are created for my ELL students WIDAs 2-6, but I also use them for remediation with students with lexiles below grade level--my grade level is 11th grade--and as a general review. They are easy to do, so all you need is to print them out and the students pace themselves. They are optimized for our school's Amplify tablet, so I actually don't print them out. You can use them with Ipad or on computer's with Adobe Reader. These are targeted to keep students reading and answering questions relevant to the standardized tests, so it works well with kids who don't actually read the material.
Please check out my other products! They are under my US History category. I use them in conjunction with the interactive notebook activities on the TPT seller's page Students of History.
