Students will start this engaging activity with an analysis of the players involved in the Watergate scandal including, H.R. Haldeman, John Dean, Archibald Cox and more. Next, students will work through a timeline of many of the key events that played out during the scandal. This will give your students a great reference of the time frame of the scandal. Finally students will analyze a political cartoon of Richard Nixon as well as two excerpts from the Nixon tapes including the "Smoking Gun" recording.
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.
3) A detailed answer key to the lesson activity to save you time and help guide student comprehension.
