The Turn of the Century. Tenth Grade Lesson. Schools of California Online Resources for Education (SCORE): Connecting California's Classrooms to the World.
Bartels, Dede
In this 10th grade social studies and language arts interdisciplinary unit, students research and report on historical figures from the turn of the 20th century. Students are required to work in pairs to learn about famous and common individuals, including Andrew Carnegie, Samuel Gompers, Susan B. Anthony, Thomas Edison, Theodore Roosevelt, Booker T. Washington, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Joseph Pulitzer, William Jennings Bryan, Eugene Debs, Alexander Graham Bell, Frances Willard, William McKinley, Jane Addams, John D. Rockefeller, Mother Jones, Henry Ford, William Randolph Hearst, coal miners, and immigrants. After completing their research, participants present their information to the whole class, and then break into smaller groups to discuss their figure's role in specific areas like education, suffrage, freedom of the press, labor and labor unions, and immigration policy. The student guide provides detailed instructions and contains a list of resources, including Web sites. The teacher's guide ties the lesson to California state standards and provides suggestions on how to conduct and evaluate the activities. (RJC)
