Students answer 12 questions to either learn about LBJ's presidency by using this as a mini-lesson (which would require the students to research the answers), or review what they have previously learned about his time in office. They touch on various decisions, domestic acts, appointments, and international events throughout Johnson's time in office. An answer key is included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions and tasks include:
-Johnson’s Great Society proposed progressive reforms for America. List 4 of them.
-What did the answer to question 4 do for American morale in the larger context of the Cold War and race against the Soviet Union?
-Create a billboard type image that would have been put up in major cities after the astronauts came back to earth to celebrate America’s accomplishments and reinvigorated sense of preeminence over the Soviet Union.
-The Gulf of Tonkin Resolution granted Johnson the power to use military force in Southeast Asia without having to ask for an official declaration of war. Why was this so historically significant?
-Write a solid 2 paragraph summary of Johnson’s legacy today. You must refer to both his domestic agenda and foreign policy.
- To you, what is the bigger/more lasting/more remembered part of Johnson’s legacy, his domestic accomplishments or his failures in Vietnam? Why?
