In this highly-engaging activity on the political machine known as Tammany Hall, students investigate its legacy, what it was, how Tammany Hall worked, how it gained support, and if the corruption of George Plunkitt or William Boss Tweed was wrong or right!

Students investigate Tammany Hall's role in the Gilded Age by tackling three overarching questions on this controversial political machine. Students will analyze six documents that focus on the group's legacy, figure out how each document helps their overall goal and overarching questions, take relevant notes, and finally complete an on-demand writing assignment where students compile their learning on Tammany Hall. In the end, students will decide if the corruption of Tammany Hall (Boss Tweed, George Plunkitt) was wrong or right!

Also included is the final writing prompt for students (with student check-off to help with organization) along with a teacher key!

Fun, engaging, challenging, and interesting! Enjoy!
