This is a six lesson unit by Reading Through History that documents the domestic policies of Theodore Roosevelt's presidency. The series begins with Roosevelt becoming president due to McKinley's assassination and continues with lessons focusing on Roosevelt the Trustbuster, the Coal Strike of 1902 and the war on railroad tycoons, Roosevelt's Meat Inspection Act and Pure Food and Drug Act, Roosevelt's conservationist policies, and Roosevelt's involvement (or lack thereof) with civil rights issues.
For each one page reading there are three pages of student activities that include reading comprehension questions, vocabulary activities, guided reading activities, student summaries, and a student response essay question. There is enough material to cover 3-5 days of class.
*My students typically complete an assignment in the 30-40 minute range, which allows for ample lead in discussion prior to the issuing of the assignment.
