Progressive Era

Jane Addams LogoThis assignment was part of the historical module of my social science inquiry course. Students had selected a social issue that they would work on all semester, building a small WordPress website that explored it through both historical and social theoretical lens.

As it was not a history class, I did an opening walk through of the Progressive Era to introduce students to the issues facing Addams.

Students also had access to historical newspapers through Proquest Historical Newspapers subscriptions and Newspapers.com.
