Product Description
It is the 19th century and reform movements are beginning to sweep the United States. The four biggest movements of the time are Abolition (ending of slavery), Prison/Mental Institution reform (gain better treatment of inmate and mentally ill), Temperance (decrease consumption of alcohol), and Women’s Rights (gain equality for women).

You will be assigned to one of the four major reform movements. Your goal is to go before the chair of the Congressional Appropriations Committee and gain funding for your movement. The appropriations committee gives money from the federal budget to worthy programs. To secure this funding you will need to convince the chair of the committee that your cause is more important than the other three.

To Do:
Step 1: Complete the research questions for your particular reform group.

Step 2: Draft a speech detailing the background, goals, importance, and reasons why your group deserves the federal funding more so than the others. (If your research mentions key figures, you need to include them in your speech. It always helps to name drop!)

Step 3: Complete the “Presentation Information Sheet” on the other three reform movements as they present.


Activity includes: Direction sheet, 4 reform movement information sheets with guided questions, speech outline, and presentation note taking sheet.
