~Glogster Poster Project ~

Project Description: President Obama has now been in office for almost 2 years. Many Americans have mixed feelings about what the president has accomplished so far in his presidential term. In order to form our own opinions about how well President Obama is doing, we need to look into the type of job he has done thus far.
Task: Your task is to create a Glogster poster that highlights at least 5 things President Obama has accomplished in the past 2 years. Your poster should clearly express your personal opinion on whether or not Barack Obama is doing a good job as 44th President of the United States.

Order of Tasks:

b. Issues he has addressed- Education, Health care, Immigration, Environmental Hazards (Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill)…
c. More Issues- Poverty, Social Security, Taxes…
d. Successes and his future goals.

2. After your research, gather your thoughts and form your own opinion of President Obama and what he has accomplished thus far. Now, begin to develop your Glog. Your Glog must include the following…
