This project goes with an Industrialization Unit and is best to start after you have discussed Andrew Carnegie & John Rockefeller, Captains of Industry vs. Robber Barons, Gospel of Wealth, Philanthropy, and Vertical and Horizontal Integration.
This is a creative project that has 5 major components:
1. Invention Proposal
2. Advertisement for Magazine (Way most products were sold then,)
3. Vertical/Horizontal Integration Chart (So your student can create a monopoly and make lots of $$).
4. Worker Relations (Robber Baron Component)
- Union Strike Poster
- News Article about the Strike (usually violent and owner wins)
5. Gospel of You (Captain of Industry Component)
- New Article about Philanthropy
Left this in a Microsoft Word Document so you can edit sections that you might like to alter.
