Product Description
This Progressive Era and Gilded Age bundle has 55 PPT Slides, videos, 2 different readings, tests, quizzes and more. You will not be disappointed.

This product is also included in a bundle that has all of my best-selling FIRST SEMESTER OF US HISTORY or try my

This is what I use prior to showing Men Who Built America assignment. This is quite a large presentation at 56 slides in length.

Here is what I am including in this BUNDLE:

- Progressive PPT (55 slide PPT)
- 2 Videos
- 2 Different Readings
- Men Who Built America Assignment ( is free to watch on Amazon Prime)
- Crash Course Episodes ( 3 episodes)
- Test and Quizzes

- 1. 56 SLIDE PPT WITH NOTE TAKING GUIDE I have spent a lot of time putting this together. It is not perfect but gives the students the general ideas behind the 2nd Industrial Revolution and the call to make some changes the 2nd go around. I have included a graphic organizer to have the students take notes on with a key so that you will not be lost. I also included some teacher notes to make sure all the stories are told as well.

- 2. VIDEOS FOR THE PPT I love 3-4 minute clips that I can embed in my PPT. They are engaging and draw the students into the material. I have included the following videos:

- Thomas Edison
- The Populist Party
- Big Business with Rockefeller
- Inventions of the Gilded Age
- Remembering the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire (I ran out of room)
- Progressive Era
- General Introduction to the Unit

Here is the link to the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, best one I have ever seen. 7'18".

Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire

READINGS I have also included the RR Strike reading and the Homestead Strike reading. It is a great comparison /contrast reading that can be done as a HW assignment or in class.




This is an assignment that I created seeing the need for a good explanation of big business in the 1800's.

The video series does a great job of explaining the second Industrial Revolution which is one of the reasons I really like. The series gives a great focus to the CHARACTER qualities of these men and how they made their fortunes.

It did not happen overnight but a unique set of circumstances presented themselves and these men took advantage of that. I like to call it LUCK meeting OPPORTUNITY with a lot of hard work. Enjoy the assignment as it is meant to be done inside and outside of class.

- 4. CRASH COURSE VIDEO GUIDES I am including Crash Course US History video guides for Ep. 25, 26, and 27.


Here is what is included in this 4 page download:

- 1. Note Taking Guide for Students: This is essentially a blank section to take notes in.

- 2. Summary of the Video: A place for the students to write a short summary of what they have watched.

- 3. Teacher Notes from the: My 1 page of notes.

- 4. Quiz for students / with answers: There is a 10 question quiz with answers from the episode. It can be taken in class or taken home. I think in class would be better.

In which John Green teaches you a bit about the 4th of July. In this special short Crash Course, John celebrates American Independence Day by teaching you how the holiday came to be on the 4th of July, and the many ways that Americans celebrate the day. This is a little different than the normal Crash Course episode, so be prepared.

- BONUS I am including a close reading sheet to use with the above readings. The Crash Course video on the Progressives puts it all together and is a nice conclusion to the teaching.

- 5. Pixton Comic lesson Allows students to take something very difficult and simplify it into something like a comic strip.

- 6. TEST AND QUIZZES I am including my test and quizzes with answer keys.
