Last Week was a crazy week. We returned to school on Tuesday, January 2 and I was out sick on Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday school was closed due to a cold day. My students were on their own for most of their learning for Chapter 17. Today I wanted to review it with them.
After handing out this week’s work, I went over a web diagram with the students about chapter 17. We discussed in detail terms like Social Darwinism, scientific management, AFL, Knights of Labor, Gospel of Wealth, Social Gospel, vertical integration, horizontal integration, etc. The students seemed to remember these terms once we reviewed them; the only one I had to explain more than once was Social Gospel.
For the last ten minutes or so of class, we examined the political cartoon “The Protector of Industries.” We discussed the message of the cartoon, who would support it, who would oppose it, why might it have been created, and what effects of the ideas represented in the image might be.
