PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is based on the 8th grade NYS social studies curriculum and standards. This PowerPoint has two ability levels: basic and enriched. The enriched version has more links and goes into more detail. The basic version is simplified as much as possible. The same content is used in both versions. It is great to use when parallel teaching with a co-teacher. If you are not lucky enough to have a co-teacher, you can choose the level that will benefit the majority of your class.

The PowerPoint includes:

Essential Questions are below and occur at the beginning of the PowerPoint and again at the end:

What kind of scandals and problems occurred during the Gilded Age and what were the solutions?
Why would third parties arise to challenge the Democrat and Republican Parties?
Why were political machines a problem?
What is laissez-faire?

Content:

Scandals, Depression, and Limitations of Traditional Politics Resulted in Change
National Political Parties
Era of Machine Politics
4 Political Cartoons (recommend using http://www.eastconn.org/tah/PoliticalCartoonsOfPoliticalMachines.pdf for questioning.)
Laissez-faire
