This is a thoughtful and creative unit on the Progressive Era. In a series of activities students are guided through the process of exploring the essential question of whether the social reforms of the era were successful. The individual lessons are varied ranging from a discussion of a song about the era’s problems to a vocabulary worksheet that provides important background content to a culminating newspaper tabloid project that responds to the essential question. The materials are all posted including all worksheets, a quiz with an answer sheet, a PowerPoint, guidelines for the project, and a rubric and model assignment. It should be noted that while the unit plan lays out time allotments for each activity, it might be beneficial to spread out the lessons over a longer period of time in order to allow adequate time for students to complete each task and fully understand the content.
