As we continue our journey through history, we will move from the creation of the United States Constitution, to the major shifts in political  ideology. Our current focus is Andrew Jackson, the Father of Democracy. Students will evaluate if this is an appropriate nickname for him by analyzing primary and secondary source documents. Using this knowledge, they will answer the question, "How democratic was Andrew Jackson?"
            We have also shifted our writing from the formal structure of debates to creative and descriptive foucs. Students are learning how to Show Not Tell in their writing by using vivid details, a developed setting, and proper dialogue. These writing techniques will help them to successfully write Civil War Letters in April. 
            Although students are no longer completing a Book Bingo, they are still expected to be reading a book of their choice.
