Major Events of Washington's Presidency Lesson  

As students watch they complete an interactive note-sheet with fill-in-the-blanks, comprehension and critical thinking questions, and a thinking map. The video teaches students the major events of Washington's Presidency and how his actions set precedents for all future presidents! They learn about he could have been made king but refused, his election, his efforts to unify the nation, the debate and fight over Hamilton's Financial Plan and the Bank of the United States, the formation of the first political parties and how that worried Washington. It then covers Washington's Neutrality Proclamation to keep the US out of the European wars, how he successfully ended the Whiskey Rebellion, and finally his Farewell Address and his lasting message for the nation to keep the nation at peace and unified.

The video helps visual learners with on-screen text of the main ideas, powerful images, and it reviews the important concepts to ensure comprehension. Cut the lecture and spend more time working with students and supporting their learning with this video lesson!
