Explore the legacy of Andrew Jackson in a debate activity with your students. Instead of the boring lecture and notes, have your students analyze primary source images, read text for point of view, create Pop-Up graphically organized notes, and debate the essential question – Should Andrew Jackson be praised or condemned for his actions.
The lesson begins with an anchor chart on point of view and a word wall. After a preview question, students read an essay on Jackson’s life and actions as president. At several points during the lesson, they are asked to debate the essential question. They will take notes in their Interactive Notebook on Jackson’s heroic and villainous actions with pop-up mini-Jacksons! At the end of the lesson, they will summarize key events with images and debate his role in history.
Use the task cards as mid-point checks, exit tickets, warm-ups or as a scoot game review before your test.
