Meet John D. Rockefeller, Jane Addams, Teddy Roosevelt and more through your students' discovery of them. In this inquiry-based project, students research a major figure of the Progressive Era and Gilded Age
and then embody that person at a culminating party. This project, a favorite among my students, puts students literally in the lives of historical figures.
