7th Grade: Complete and submit work on Google Classroom by the end of the day
Good morning, scholars! Once again, I want to reiterate that I'm so impressed with your dedication and hard work!
When answering today's questions, I want you to focus on thinking critically and fully explaining your responses. Remember, gathering details from the text is so important, but just as important is the way you explain your answer. Take the time to read the text carefully. Imagine what it must have been like to live in the United States in the 1820s.
Today's reading focuses on the national elections of the 1820s. You will be reading about famous Americans like Andrew Jackson and John Quincy Adams (the son of John Adams). Many Americans thought their wasn't fairness in important elections in the 1820s. Different regions of the countries favored different candidates. 200 years later, many Americans still cannot agree on candidates and the electoral process.
I hope you enjoy today's reading! I encourage you to analyze critically and think like a historian!!
