Summary:
The purpose of this lesson is to compare history textbooks to editorial cartoons of the
Jackson Era in order to illustrate varying opinions on the character of Andrew Jackson.
Students must evaluate the cartoons, determine historical accurateness, and identify any
biases. Then, they must juxtapose the information in their textbooks to the cartoons and
formulate their own opinions about Jackson. Those opinions will then be expressed in an
opinion essay, using their findings as details to support their ideas.
