This is a PRIMARY SOURCE bundle for the Gilded Age! There are 5 primary sources that students investigate having to do with the Gilded Age. This is a GREAT supplement to any unit on the Gilded Age. Students get to interact with real documents, political cartoons, photographs, and speeches given from key figures from the Gilded Age!
The primary sources are meant to be supplemental to what you are already doing. Most are excerpts of the speeches, not the full speeches. These work GREAT for Middle School students, and lead to great discussions! These primary sources could be used as warmups, bellringers, quizzes, supplemental activities, homework, exit tickets, enrichment and extension activities, and much more!

- Ragged Dick by Horatio Alger
