Here are questions for each chapter in Doris Kearns Goodwin's book, The Bully Pulpit. This can be handed out to students to complete as they read the book to demonstrate their comprehension. The book covers Theodore Roosevelt and William Taft. It also covers Sam McClure, Ida Tarbell, Lincoln Steffens, Ray Baker, and the rest of the muckraking journalists of the time. Without the muckrakers Roosevelt and Taft would not have accomplished all that they did in reforming the government and capitalism in the wake of the industrial revolution. This is the story of how the Progressive Movement got its start.
Students who read this book will have a very firm grasp of the US History topics covered. It is an excellent book.
