This PowerPoint presentation leads students through the formation of the first political parties in the United States. Beginning with a discussion of Washington's second term as president, the presentation then traces the development of political parties to the differences between Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson.
The presentation then leads students through a discussion of the presidential election of 1796 and how the election of Adams as president and Jefferson as vice-president only cemented the differences between Federalists and Democratic-Republicans.
The presentation also includes a discussion of a political cartoon: Cinques-Tetes, or the Paris Monster
. Handouts for the political cartoon are INCLUDED in the zip file (questions and answer key). Here, instructors might also wish to have students view the wonderful animated video about the XYZ Affair that can be found on YouTube.
Finally, the presentation includes an examination of the Alien and Sedition Acts and the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions.
The presentation is saved in a 97-2003 format and uses a Calibri font. Adjustments can be made as necessary.
