In this highly engaging unit, students investigate the Age of Antebellum Reform by focusing on seven different aspects of the movement. Students read 8 focused and challenging articles that provide the content for this unit. Students are introduced to the birth of this movement in the Second Great Awakening, then learn about SIX different areas of reform: Temperance (no alcohol consumption), Prison Reform (Dorothea Dix), School Reform (Horace Mann), Abolition (Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison), the early Women's Rights Movement (Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B Anthony, Lucretia Mott), and a "lesser-known reforms" section detailing the push for homesteads out west, the rise of Bloomers (Amelia Bloomer) for women, and vegetarianism (Sylvester Graham and the Graham Cracker). Students record simple notes as they learn about this era!

Also included in this bundle is the Declaration of Sentiments activity, located here!
