Activity Overview


Jackson believed in a limited government, but during his time as president, he had and made use of expansive powers. This is especially evident in his fight against the Second Bank of the United States. Using a grid storyboard, students will describe the purpose and function of the bank. Students will then do the same for Jackson's response actions against the bank, as well as examine the effects on the American economy. They should also touch on Jackson's power of veto in their examination.

By using a grid, students will be able to easily visualize the cause and effect of each action. Students can even use their completed project as the base for a larger paper.


Extended Activity

Have students research the current standing and function of the Federal Reserve, our national “bank”, and securer of funds. Have students explain and understand its functions, the role it plays in the American economy today, and how it affects the common people of America today.
