During the presidency of Andrew Jackson, the United States experienced a number of pivotal political, economic, and social transformations. The materials found on this Web site were developed to promote understanding of these changes and their impact on the nation. Utilizing an extensive list of primary source documents, secondary resources, images, and video clips, the ANDREW JACKSON PBS Web site provides traditional lessons plans and two WebQuests.
- Revolution and the New Nation (1754-1820s)
- Expansion and Reform (1801-1868)
- Westward Expansion
Taken from the Smithsonian Source, these lesson plans and DBQs are organized by grade level. The DBQ primary sources can stand alone in DBQ exercises. Images of the primary sources are independent of any extensive explanatory information, so that the images can be used as handouts.
