Resources to Gear Up for the Inauguration and First 100 Days

January 20 will mark the 58th inauguration in our nation’s history. President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign and subsequent election was inspired in part by widespread frustration with business as usual in Washington. But his inauguration and first 100 days will be watched closely by insiders and outsiders alike, following a time-honored tradition that dates back to the Great Depression.

A president’s inaugural address and first 100 days are widely seen as indicators of what an administration has in store.

Here are a set of collected resources to explore the upcoming inauguration and first 100 days with your students.
