Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To assess the impact of the expansion of business and industry on the people of the United States.

TIME:
1 and 1/2 class periods

Students begin by reading a short overview about the growth of business and industry. This is followed by a series of 30 statements that class members must decide are advantages or disadvantages of big business.

Next, in a section entitled Solving the Problems Created by Big Business, students pretend to be the President and will write a State of the Union Address suggesting legislation that would solve problems facing the country in 1890. A list of eight issues is provided for students to base their speeches on. (EXAMPLE: "Factory owners demand that their workers be on the job for 12 hours a day, 6 days a week") You can give a few students a chance to read their State of the Union Address to the class.

The lesson ends with a section entitled Businesses Discover New Ways to Sell Their Products. After reading background information about different types of stores (specialty, department, chain, etc.), students must then provide an example of a modern-day business in their area that fits into each category.

Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
