During the week of 10/9 we further studied Andrew Jackson, the Native Americans, and completed an in class summative assessment. During the week we read a speech from Andrew Jackson regarding Indian removal, which can be found on my blog, that was given to congress. We also watched a short video piece about the removal of the Cherokee people and the other 5 Civilized Tribes. On Thursday the students completed an in class Detailed Paragraph summative assignment, followed by a close read of a textbook except of what we had been reading from Zinn and Johnson. Next week we will look at the idea of Manifest Destiny along with the thoughts and ideas of Alexis de Tocqueville. At this point in the semester, students should be proficient on three different summative assignments.
