Through the video and notes students will learn the major changes during Jacksonian Democracy that allowed the "common man" to vote and participate in government. While explaining how this was a major improvement as power shifted away from the elites to the average man, it also teaches the limitations of Jacksonian Democracy and how slavery spread, Native Americans were treated brutally under Jackson's policies, and women were still denied the vote. It covers Jackson's battle with the bank, the spoils system, his use of the veto, and why his critics saw him as a king.
✅The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still interesting.
