The goal of this material is to give a brief overview of the Progressive Era and the social and political reforms that took place during this time, due to the efforts of Roosevelt, Addams, and muckrakers like Upton Sinclair. Students will have close reads of excerpts from Twenty Years of Hull House and The Jungle along with critical thinking questions. I tried to make the material easy enough for upper elem., but it is useable for middle school as well. It also includes information on the 16th, 17th, 18th, and 19th Amendments.
