This visually stimulating presentation provides a detailed account of Progressives on the National Stage in the United States in the early 1900's. Specifically, actions of the three progressive presidents of the era (Roosevelt, Taft, & Wilson) are highlighted. It can be used by instructor as tool to facilitate class discussion (and notes), or uploaded into google classroom for independent student use. The slides are filled with colorful pictures, maps, charts, and other relevant information that will breathe life into this fascinating era of history while providing a platform in which to build additional related activities.
