PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a complete lesson about the one of the most important Muckrakers of the Gilded/Progressive era, Jacob Riis. In this lesson, students will participate in a PowerPoint lecture and discussion about Muckrakers and Jacob Riis, produce a photograph of a social issue they believe to be important, and discuss the social issues brought to light through the photography of their group and their peers. This lesson fits in perfectly with standards on the Gilded Age and The Progressive Era. This lesson isn't for the faint of heart, it will inevitably lead to some difficult yet important discussions about serious social issues as students make connections between the class material and their own personal experiences.
