Presidential Politics: Week 1!

Hey everyone!! We’ve had a super eventful week in Presidential Politics. The latter part of our week was focused on the presidency of Andrew Jackson. We explored his controversial presidency and even more colorful life. We took a field trip to The Hermitage, his plantation just south of Nashville.

As we approach the second week, we are starting to explore different options for our final project. The template for this project is picking four presidents who you feel should be represented on Mt. Rushmore. The students have greeted this project with interest and are already working on creative ways to represent their ideas.

We’ve had a great first week!! All of the students have been so open and accepting of each others opinions and have really worked together. This next week should be a blast!
