Bundle Description
This series of political cartoons includes In Memoriam - our civil service as it was, King Andrew I, and The Downfall of Mother Bank. The cartoons focus on Jackson's presidency and perceived abuses of power: the spoils system, vetoing the charter of the Second Bank of the United States, and defying the Supreme Court's decision in Worcester v. Georgia (1832). Although Jacksonian democracy was intended to demonstrate that the common man could be trusted with political power, Jackson's presidency seemed to indicate the opposite.

The download includes the following for each cartoon:

1. A PowerPoint - complete with discussion notes for each slide - that teachers can use to lead students through the cartoon.

2. An introductory paragraph that describes the circumstances behind each cartoon.

3. A full-size picture of each cartoon, allowing students to label as instructed.

4. A graphic organizer that assists students in identifying different parts of the cartoon, analyzing symbols, and determining the meaning of each cartoon.

5. A series of questions based on each political cartoon.

6. An answer key for each cartoon.

You can, of course, also purchase In Memoriam -- our civil service as it was, King Andrew I, and The Downfall of Mother Bank separately. I am bundling them together here at a discount.
