Learning Objective

Students will learn important information about the Progressive Era & American imperialism.


This Progressive Era & American Imperialism comprehensive unit plan (digital version included!) integrates literacy. There are 4 complete lessons in this bundle PLUS supplemental activities. This unit includes about 5 weeks of materials. Audios of the reading passages, quizzes, unit test, & modified test are included. This is perfect for students with read aloud accommodations. This unit includes about 5 weeks of materials. This resource can also be easily used for distance/digital learning because all components (except the simulation) are available in a digital format.

THIS UNIT CAN BE USED AS A STAND ALONE CURRICULUM. This can be used as homeschool curriculum, too.

This unit offers a savings of over 40% versus buying the resources individually.

The 4 lessons included in this curriculum unit are:

Reform Movements

Presidency of Theodore Roosevelt

Presidencies of William Taft & Woodrow Wilson

American Imperialism

If you have purchased any of the above No Prep lessons, you have the above lessons, but you do NOT have the supplemental activities.

Limited on copies or paper? Every component of this lesson is ready-to-go on GOOGLE, so you can easily assign to your students! The quizzes, unit test, and modified test are also available on GOOGLE Forms, and I include explicit directions on how to assign and tweak (if desired) for your students. The quizzes, unit test, & modified unit test are also self-grading!

This unit includes:

• 4 PowerPoint presentations that can be used to facilitate discussion or have students take notes

• 4 slotted notes pages so students can focus on recording the important information from the PowerPoint presentations (which includes carefully curated videos & links that will enrich the lessons) Editable slotted notes included!

• 4 informational reading passages about the Progressive Era & U.S. Imperialism (There are TWO versions of the reading passage included. One is the "paper saver" version for when you have to limit your copies. The other is the "note-taking" version that has enough space for annotating and taking notes. This version also includes bolded headers for the different sections!)

• 16 activities (4 per lesson) (key terms, dates & events, data analysis, significant people, political cartoon, literary works, and a literacy connection) per lesson. Three of the four activities PER lesson have two levels: a basic recall and an application of knowledge.

• 4 quizzes

• answer keys for the slotted notes, activity pages, and the quizzes

• GOOGLE version of all components

• 4 GOOGLE Form self-grading quizzes, unit test, & modified unit test

audio of reading passages, quizzes, unit test, & modified test


• 4 graphic organizers (Google version included)

33 vocabulary cards (Google version included)

4 primary source analysis (Google version included)

10 interactive notebook foldables (Google version included)

• stations- COMING SOON (Google version included)

• simulation: Building the Panama Canal COMING SOON

• editable study guide with answer key (Google version included)

• editable unit test with answer key (Google version included)

• editable modified test with answer key (Google version included)

• teacher's guide with suggested pacing map

Specific reading skills in this unit are: citing text & making inferences; relationships in a text/cause & effect; unknown words & phrases; and central ideas & summary.

You will be easily integrating reading with your social studies content because the 4 graphic organizers focus on one specific reading skill per organizer, AND students will be analyzing primary documents.
