Progressivism and Industrialization: More questions than answers....

This weekend, students will be engaging in the reading of chapter 19.  They will be wrestling with the issues brought out by Progressivism and the threat it posed to industrialization.  At this point, students will have to reflect and think about which themes are more reflective of their nation, their identity, and the people they are now and the ones they hope to be.  While they wrestle with this, here is our schedule of work for the week:
Monday- Students will finish discussion of Progressivism themes and their identifications for chapter 19 should be done.  If they have played their cards correctly, they will only have had to do three identifications.  We will be concluding our discussion of Progressivism with an excerpt from Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle."
Tuesday- Students will take a Common Core Assessment on "The Jungle."  This will be done in class and with resources such as the textbook and student packets available.
Wednesday- Students will begin the process of selecting their projects on Progressivism.  For homework, students should be working on their projects.
Thursday- Students will declare their topics and begin work on their projects or work on Edmodo.  For homework, students should be working on their projects which are due on Friday, October 26 at 5:00 PM.
Friday- As we have a Team Activity planned, students will need to be working on their projects outside of class and make sure their identifications for chapter 19 are done.

Students will receive their graded identifications from the Industrialization unit on 10.22.  If you would like to read a course overview from conferences, please click here.

All best.
