Activity Overview


While Reagan was praised for his actions, he also received much criticism for them as well. The economy did well under Reagan, but when he left office, the economy was in worse shape than when he entered. He was praised for his foreign policy but criticized for his heavy military spending.

Using a grid storyboard, students will discuss these and other issues, outlining the viewpoints of both Reagan's supporters and his opposition on his major executive decisions. They'll be able to assess both sides of the arguments and examine the legacy of Reagan's decisions.


Extended Activity

Have students analyze and explain the support and opposition towards another president. Some recommendations are George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, or Barack Obama. Students should analyze their major executive decisions as well as the support and criticisms they received.
