Product Description
Students are given a challenge from their Aunt Bessie and are asked to select three American progressive reforms worthy of a million dollars.

Students examine popular progressive reforms with this gallery. Each reform has a quick synopsis, primary sources, reformer's profiles, and effects including important legislation. Students record their findings in an easy to use chart.

Students then determine whether they would recommend Aunt Bessie to sponsor this reform during the Progressive Era. To assess, students write a three paragraph letter stating to Aunt Bessie why this progressive reform is worthy of being sponsored.

There are many ways this can be utilized in the classroom: Jigsaws, Walkthrough Galleries, however I have each reform in a folder and students trade folders every 7.5 minutes clockwise. Great lesson for a quick overview of the Progressive Era

Reforms Include:
- Food Safety
- Deforestation
- Tenements & Living Conditions
- Child Labor
- Government Corruption
- Temperance Movement
- Civil Rights
- Eugenics

Includes 77 Slides with the reform movements, Student Chart Worksheet, Aunt Bessie's Letter Introduction/Directions, & Rubric.
