Once you have decided who are going to put on trial, you will need to
research and create
a case in defense of that president, or against that president. The research requirements are loose. Below, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve included a few websites to help you. And donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t forget Ã¢â‚¬â€œ
Wikipedia has awesome articles about some of these presidents.
Your case can include as many or as few points as possible
. Some historians believe that ONE EVENT can ruin the entire legacy of a President, others believe that the many good deeds of the President outweigh all the controversies.
Your case MUST include information from a PresidentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s State of the Union address Ã¢â‚¬â€œ
these are primary source speeches that every President delivers about what is happening in our nation, their worries, fears, hopes, and dreams are usually outlined in this speech.
Source List / Starting Point
– overview of each President. The Impact and Legacy is a good place to start, followed by Domestic and Foreign Affairs.
Ã¢â‚¬â€œ list of all State of the Union Speeches
– good criteria for how to evaluate Presidents.
– 2017 survey of Historian ranking of Presidents. This website has data but lacks explanation.
– seriously. Wikipedia is GREAT if you know how to use it.
– general information.
Try to focus your Google search. Try these terms:
Ã¢â‚¬ËœYour president controversiesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ OR Ã¢â‚¬Ëœyour president accomplishmentsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ OR Ã¢â‚¬Ëœcriticisms of your presidentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢
Or you can search for their policies:
Ã¢â‚¬ËœLBJÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Great SocietyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ OR Ã¢â‚¬ËœReaganomicsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ or Ã¢â‚¬ËœNew Deal.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
You will need to create a slideshow containing all your evidence. It should include images, quotes, and bullet points. Be as persuasive as possible. You are trying to convince a Jury that your President was AWESOME or HORRIBLE.
Your presentation CANNOT be more than 3 minutes. You will have time to argue with the people who disagree with you.
A rough outline is below:
Slide 1 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Title
Slide 2 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Biography and Background
Slide 3 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ State of the Union Evaluation
