Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To understand how opposing political viewpoints can dramatically affect the evaluation of a new presidential administration.

TIME:
1-2 class periods

White House officials go to great lengths to emphasize the large number of accomplishments during the first hundred days of a new presidential administration. On the other hand, political opponents often have a very different viewpoint.

After going over the introductory paragraphs with the class, students read a section entitled “Supporters Viewpoint: Accomplishments of the Obama Administration.” This includes a list of things that Obama's supporters would likely view as accomplishments during his first hundred days in office. Once they have finished reading, students must choose three of the accomplishments they believe were the most significant and explain their responses in a brief writing assignment. You can then discuss their answers.

The lesson continues in the same way with another section entitled "Opponents Viewpoint: Concerns About the Obama Administration."

To conclude this activity, students use the information they read in the two previous sections to rate President Obama's first hundred days in office on a 1-10 scale. They then write a brief explanation for their rating.
