Jimmy Carter can be a difficult topic to teach, if your looking for something that can engage your students with the events surrounding Jimmy Carter's presidency, we have got what you need!
This "The Carter Years" Activity includes:
1) A graphic organizer that asks students to define the key concepts of the Carter administration. These topics include; the 1976 election, Carter's Malaise Speech, the National Energy Act, the Camp David Accords, the Iran Hostage Affair, and the Collapse of Détente. Once students define all of these topics, students will be asked to complete a personal reflection about the Carter Era in America.
Students will then analyze two political cartoons about the oil crises of the 1970s. Next, students will examine a map of Egypt and Israel to understand the importance of the Camp David Accords. These primary sources will really help your students get a better grasp on the content.
This activity can be used in many different ways in the classroom. Students can work independently, in pairs or this activity can be used as a jigsaw in order to facilitate a class wide discussion about the topics discussed in the activity.
2) A detailed answer key to the lesson activity to save you time and help guide student comprehension.
This activity can also be found in a bundle paired with a PowerPoint, Keynote and PDF version of a fully customizable lecture found here:
