Bellringer (10/18/13) Please write the question and the answer. Progress is defined as to move forward or onward. What do you think the goal of the progressives in the late 19 th and early 20 th centuries was? Give at least two examples of areas they hoped to impact. Please take a few minutes to consider your answer. After discussion, please place your bellringers on the desk in the front of the room.
Key Terms and People Section 1: Jacob Riis, progressivism, muckrakers, Ida Tarbell, Lincoln Steffens, Robert M. La Follette, 17 th Amendment, initiative, referendum, recall Section 2: Prohibition, Woman’s Christian Temperance Union, Frances Willard, Carry Nation, 18 th Amendment, National Association of Colored Women, Susan B. Anthony, National American Woman Suffrage Association
Muckraking: Upton Sinclair What do you think working conditions in a meatpacking plant was like? Do you think the upper class, middle class, or working class worked in these conditions? Sinclair is famous for his novel The Jungle. It described conditions in meatpacking plants predominantly around Chicago.
Reading: The Jungle Open to page 528. Quietly read the excerpt to yourself. Now, let’s read it as a class.
Post-Reading: The Jungle What are some of the images created by Sinclair to convey working conditions to the reader? Do you think owners of meatpacking plants were happy with this portrayal of their businesses? How do you think the nation responded to Sinclair’s novel?
Progressivism: What’s the Point? From page 522: “Progressives focused on three areas of reform: easing the suffering of the urban poor, improving unfair and dangerous working conditions, and reforming government at the national, state, and local levels.” In a small group, choose one of those three areas. Create a small poster illustrating different ways the progressives acted to improve that area, i.e. muckraking articles/books written to bring attention to the need to improve working conditions. You may use pages 522-527 in your book and/or devices. You have 30 minutes to create your poster.
Happy Monday! Today will be a discussion bellringer. But first, a quick film.film With a partner, discuss each of the following questions for two minutes: 1.Do you agree with the reasons progressives wanted to undertake reforming American society in the late 19 th and early 20 th century? 2.Do you think the progressives were successful in achieving the types of changes they wanted to? 3.Do you think there are things in American society today that mirror what the progressives were working against?
