Product Description
How should history remember Jacob Riis, the famous photojournalist muckraker? Utilizing primary and secondary sources, students will research and question the historical character of Riis, a prominent figure in the Progressive era. While some point to his crusading work on behalf of the urban poor, others declare him a racist writer and deceitful photographer. Students will analyze photographs, listen to audio recordings, gather historical evidence from sources, and develop a thesis-based historical marker evaluating the life and work of Jacob Riis.
