This Reform Movement Research Unit can be used as an Independent Study Unit, but it can also be used in other ways:
a practice unit for taking notes on in-class lectures
a public speaking assignment for sharing research with other students
a review or overview of the Reform Movements of the 19th century
Biographies of all historic figures in this packet can be found on Wikipedia as well as in other books and reference materials.
Students research and take notes on a reformer for the Nineteenth (19th) Century in movements including temperance, abolition/slavery, women's right, education, religion, health and humane treatment, and perfect societies/utopia.
Research is independent but students may share their findings in way of your choice: essay, class presentation, or small group sharing. Note taking sheets are provided for the researchers and for those listening to the presentations.
