Product Description

This 2 to 3 days lesson encourages critical, historical thinking and puts students in the shoes of various people from Thomas Jefferson's presidency. Students will begin by reading situation reports about four major dilemmas that our country faced during Jefferson's presidency. They will then "choose their own adventure" and decide how they would have proceeded if they were in a position to choose the fate of our country. After a "four corners" style debate, you will use included slides to debrief students on how the situation was resolved in reality.
