Students will take a look at the War of 1812 and go to the Election of 1840. Throughout the lesson, you can pawn students off at any time to complete certain aspects as a WebQuest instead of notes. There are several Quick Write questions that stop and ask students to analyze paintings, photographs, and their meanings, predict what will happen next, and express their own ideas. You will notice that in the PowerPoint, there are different colored texts. Most of what the students need to write down is in the green text. There are some instances where the notes will ask them a question that will be answered with what is listed in white. At the end of this activity, I ask students to create a t-shirt design over a major event that occurred during this lesson. There are several that they can do more research about and create a pretty cool t-shirt. I allow students to come up with their own criteria prior to designing the shirt. We have to agree on the criteria together (to keep them from slacking) so that is why the criteria portion is blank.
*Note: The PowerPoint was made in Google Slides format so there might be some quick edits that you need to make. Sometimes the conversion can distort the font and quickly changing the size of the font can solve the problem. If you immediately upload it to your Google Drive (which I highly recommend) there should not be any problems.
