Summary

In 1803, President Thomas Jefferson guided a piece of foreign diplomacy through the U.S. Senate, the purchase of Louisiana territory from France. Jefferson chose Meriwether Lewis, his personal secretary, who possessed frontiersman skills to explore the territory. Lewis, in turn, solicited the help of William Clark, whose abilities as a draftsman and a frontiersman were strong. This lesson, using the Lewis and Clark Expedition as an example, focuses on the power granted to the president and the Senate in Article II, Section 2, Clause 2, of the U.S. Constitution, the power to make treaties with foreign nations. The lesson correlates to the National History Standards and to the National Standards for Civics and Government. It furnishes 13 primary source documents, both print and photographs. The lesson provides historical background about the Lewis and Clark Expedition and presents seven diverse teaching activities for the teacher to implement in the classroom, such as having students do research from print and online sources and having them read relevant books or journals. (Contains a written document analysis worksheet and a photograph analysis worksheet.) (BT)
