About This Lesson

United States President Theodore Roosevelt was known for his "big stick" foreign policy but also for progressive domestic reforms, most notably with the environment. How did he fit into the Republican Party during his time? Where would he fit on the political spectrum today?

The reading and worksheet found hereas well as attached allows students to analyze and evaluate Teddy Roosevelt's complicated political legacy. 

The attached excerpt is taken from a January 2019 Carnegie Council podcast entitled “The Crack-Up: Teddy Roosevelt's Complicated Legacy, with Patty O'Toole.” The podcast is based off The New York Times opinion piece “Theodore Roosevelt Cared Deeply About the Sick. Who Knew?” written by historian and author Patricia O’Toole.
