UNIT II...Day #5...3/5 & 3/6
Today we learned about the presidency of Andrew Jackson.
He was a figure that commanded respect and was an extremely polarizing president in both good and bad ways.
We began by learning about the election of 1828 and how it transformed the campaigning process completely and is similar to what we have today.
We read a play as a class called Muddy Boots and made a list of as many vocabulary ideas as we could with regard to AJ's legacy as a president. This was an intro activity.
We then used the cartoon series reading to analyze the details of AJ and his legacy and complete the worksheet provided.
We read up to the part that is in the book and will be discussing more of the information that covers the Trail of Tears and Indian Removal next class, but you can read the PDF of the APUSH book if you want to get a head start and have more time in class on your project.
We will watch the video on page 6 as a class next time.
You were also given the instructions for your signature assignment today and shown exampls and the rubric. It is on page 6b for details. You will have work time to utilize in the next two periods for completion.

We used a class reading that is included below to complete the first half of Page 2 of the packet and explain the story of the process that America went through to develop at a high and efficient rate after the war.
We then started using the book to look up the details of the Industrial age and are working on summaries that we will continue with 4th hour only as the rest of you will need to complete the work posted here on your own at home.

UNIT II...Day #1 2-21 & 2-24
Unit II Day #1
Today we started our story off by looking at impact that Jefferson had on America and how that time he spent wore him out to the point that he didn't desire to be remebered as a president. He was followed by James Madison and that's were we started our story for Unit II.
Madison's legacy is based completely on his role during the War of 1812 and how that event turned out. We used a class reading to follow along and answer questions that helped explain the process of the War of 1812 and I added information from a powerpoint to provide additional insights.
Use the reading and the worksheet to complete the first through the 13th questions and then watch the video segments through the fall of Washington DC and stop right before the defense of Ft. McHenry. Then read the rest of the reading and answer the questions to number 31. Finish the film clip to the start of the song.
Use the following notes to answer the last two questions and complete the assignment, which are from the powerpoint slide I gave additional information on;
THE END OF THE WAR
- Negotiated by James Monroe & signed on Christmas Eve 1814, the Treaty of Ghent brought a formal end to the war.
