Product Description
In this activity, students look at several documents related to the Palmer Raids, in order to answer the focus question: "Were the actions taken by government officials after WWI justified?" Students complete this activity after learning about the Palmer Raids and the treatment of immigrants, communists, and anarchists in the 1920s. For each of the documents, they will highlight the portion that best answers the question.

For instance, in one of the documents, an attorney's statement is given regarding the treatment of incarcerated immigrants waiting for trial, along with a picture of an immigrant with a black eye. In this case, students would highlight the immigrant's black eye and the portion of the document that expresses their maltreatment.

There is a key at the top of the page for them to use when highlighting. The students must then complete a writing activity answering the focus question using evidence from the documents. There is an answer key provided. If you would like an editable copy, please e-mail me at ccluckey33@gmail.com
