Andrew Jackson Campaign Poster Creation

4 Favorites 1 Copy (view)

In this collection, students will be tasked with taking an image or work of art of Andrew Jackson and use it to create a Campaign Poster he would have used as the first Democratic President. The instructions for the students are attached along with some recommended images from the lab. The students will take one of these images or one of their choice and add Hot Spots to explain why they chose this image. The Hot Spots will indicate what about that image makes Jackson seem Presidential or appeal to the common man. Students should be encouraged to be very creative with their Hot Spot topics.
