Today we focused our discussion and analysis on Andrew Jackson. First we explored reactions to major issues during his presidency through analysis of some political cartoons. We then turned our attention to the issues surrounding the Indian Removal Act and those who opposed it by interrogating some editorials from 1820's and 1830's newspapers. Some classes also finished up work from yesterday by completing a DocBlock analysis of the Monroe Doctrine excerpt. If you did not complete this, make sure you do so as homework.
Also as homework tonight, please be sure you have your Chapter 13 notes ready for tomorrow!! We will continue our discussion of the Jackson Administration tomorrow then finish up the seek with your first in-class LEQ essay!
