Product Description

Let your students decide for themselves if the major leaders in Industrialization were Robber Barons or Captains of Industry.

Students will answer questions on each document (9 documents) and determine if it argues that titans of industry were positive or negative influences on society. When they have finished analyzing the documents, they will decide if they think these business leaders were Robber Barons or Captains of Industry and write an outline for an essay. They will develop a thesis sentence and provide three pieces of evidence from the documents to support their argument.

This includes:

Large Print Document Set (8 pages)

Small Print Document Set (5 pages)

Answer Sheet

Document and Question Packet

I've included several different formats for multiple printing options. I like to print enough of the large print document set for my classes to work in groups of 2 or 3 and each student gets an answer sheet. I like to put the documents in page protectors in pronged folders to keep them nice from class to class, and even year to year. Students can also use dry erase markers on the plastic sleeves to annotate. It can easily be wiped off for the next class! To save printing, you can also print off class sets of the small print documents. I've also included a set with documents and questions all in one for individual work. Great for small classes or kids who were absent!
