Product Description
COMMON CORE READY. This article and activity is a great introduction or conclusion to a unit on the Progressive Era, in which students read a critical analysis of progressivism, and then reflect on their own understanding and perspective of history through an activity that requires them to cite textual evidence.

Here is a sample of the passage:
"Those favoring reforms argued back by stressing the power of the state to protect the public. Despite the Fourteenth Amendment, they argued, criminals can be jailed or fined. Such actions deprive them of liberty and property in order to protect the public against crime. By the same reasoning, laws that prevent the people from working long hours or under unhealthy conditions protect their families and society in general, not only the workers themselves."
