Students complete a 3 part activity to review President Coolidge and his presidency. The first part has 5 questions to help students review factual parts of Coolidge's presidency. In the second part of the activity students "interview" Coolidge right after his inauguration (5 questions and answers), in the third part they conduct his last interview on his deathbed (6 questions and answers), and the last task is a bonus creative opportunity. An answer key is included where appropriate. This would work for a sub.
Sample questions include:
--Which action by Coolidge was more newsworthy at the time and why: vetoing the Bonus Bill or granting all Native Americans citizenship? Which was more likely to affect America's future, how and why?
--Can you make any connections between Coolidge’s presidency and the Great Depression? Why and how or why not?
--Do you think Coolidge made the right choice to not run for a second elected term in 1928? (with 2 follow-up questions)
--What do you think will be your biggest challenge in achieving your goals?
--What do you consider your greatest success?
