Students will compare the foreign policy of both Thomas Jefferson and Woodrow Wilson by completing a comparison chart. The chart requires students to recall background context, find examples of whether each president is isolationist or interventionist, and read a primary source for each. When they are finished, students will answer short-answer questions as well. This activity will be completed after students learn about Woodrow Wilson, making it a good time to refresh students’ minds about the founding era. The historical theme is America in the World, and the historical thinking skills include comparison and understanding continuity and change over time.
