What Students Learn

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.


After the video, notes, and quiz, students read more about the life and times of Andrew Jackson and use that information to make an illustrated collage of his life and policies. The reading dives deeper into the ideas in the video to help struggling learners understand the main ideas. *See previews!
