This activity includes:
1. Reading: "The Wizard of Oz is a Real Political Allegory by Michael Genovese
2. Graphic Organizer: "The Wizard of Oz: A Political Allegory"
3. YouTube Clip: "The Real Story of Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz" (www.youtube.com/watch?v=lg93I5ydyNo)
After we have discussed the Populist movement in class...I have the students complete the reading and graphic organizer. (It may break some student's hearts.) I use the YouTube as a quick little follow up because some of the students still do not grasp all the concepts.
