This assignment is used to coincide with the History Channel's The Presidents series along with research, but it can be applied in multiple ways. I specifically focused on Cold War presidents when doing this assignment.
There is a report card to be completed for each U.S. president based on domestic policy, foreign policy, and overall approval rate. There is also a grading scale to go with each category. Based on specific events students would grade the president only on that situation. Include in this document is the following:
- The procedure used in the classroom.
- The grading scale for domestic policy, foreign policy, and approval rate.
- Report cards with "assignments" for presidents Truman-Kennedy.
- Blank report cards to apply to the president of your choice.
