This is a 40 minute lesson, #1 of 7 in the Progressive Era unit (Unit 8) in US History and Government 11. (Lessons 5-7 have students working on an immigrant letter). It is fully comprehensive (no books needed) and contains: a presentation, reading material with correlating graphic organizers (classwork or homework) and timeline. It does not include correlating Regents questions as that is restricted but I use Examgen to generate questions for homework. Vocabulary, review material, outlines, and unit presentation are also available if you purchase the Entire Unit 8 - The Progressive Era. Will be updated to Common Core standards in the future.
