Students complete an interview activity to review Garfield's presidency. They first answer 5 history based questions, then they "interview" Garfield after becoming president (5 questions and answers), and then they conduct his last interview prior to his death (7 questions and answers). The last task is a bonus creative opportunity. An answer key is included where appropriate and this would work for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--Identify the event this image is in reference to and provide an academic summary of it.
--Identify where Garfield stood on Civil Rights (include a specific issue as an example), and describe the challenges he faced by both the North and South in attempting to accomplish his goal(s).
--What do you think will be your biggest challenge in achieving your goals?
--What do you consider your greatest success?
--Had you not been assassinated, what do you think you would have focused on if you had been elected for a second term?
