Class experience

Students will learn about the most important moments and events of Andrew Jackson's presidency.  With this newly-learned information, they will be able to practice their critical thinking skills by evaluating Jackson's legacy and assessing his continued impact on America today.
I currently teach a full-year US history course at a public high school, and have taught lessons on early American history and Jackson's presidency for almost ten years.  I always stress with my students the importance of practicing historical empathy.  In particular, it is essential to learn about the dark moments that are found throughout history and understand why they happened.  By doing this we are all put in a better position to address current societal issues.
In the days prior to the meeting, I will provide a brief handout that contains guidelines for our discussion on our Classroom page, along with a list of a handful of questions and topics I plan for us to discuss.

I will also share a graphic organizer that students can choose to fill out during the lesson.  In addition to students being able to practice taking notes, the organizer can be saved so students can further explore Jackson on their own.  
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The Trail of Tears -- in which Native Americans were forcefully removed from their lands and marched west to reservations -- is a particularly tragic event in American history.  Thousands of Native Americans died on the march.
