This study guide includes multiple skill sets: multiple choice questions, political cartoon analysis, excerpt analysis, reading comprehension, etc. This would ideally be given after teaching a unit on the Gilded Age (rise of nativism, growth of cities/urbanization, labor unions, conditions of labor, captains of industry). The last page would work as an introduction to the Progressive Era with things such as: Social Gospel Movement, Social Dawinism, and Settlement Houses (Jane Addams).
