Product Description
This resource includes a great overview/ summary of President Kennedy's years in office and a graphic organizer that will help students summarize key ideas. Your students will learn about Kennedy's election, domestic affairs, foreign affairs, civil rights actions, assassination, reputation, and overall legacy in office. This resource provides the perfect intro or review assignment for your students and allows you to easily build on the information. I like to say it provides students the "meat and potatoes" of President Kennedy. You can use it in class (great for a sub!) or as a homework assignment. The graphic organizer is also a great study tool for students as they prepare for an assessment. All files come in ready-to-use PDF format.

Included in the product:
- A 4-page reading on the Kennedy presidency (covers basic background and election info, domestic affairs, foreign affairs, civil rights, assassination, reputation and legacy).
- Two versions of a 2-page graphic organizer. The first version includes more guidance as they fill it out, while the other one only includes title headings and challenges students to summarize key ideas on their own within each section. Both versions include two follow-up questions to help students assess and digest the information.
- Answer key included for the graphic organizer.
- I have also included some teacher directions as well.

I plan to post similar products for all of the contemporary U.S. presidents, so check back soon! I currently have an overview for President Truman and President Eisenhower.
