While I was checking the video guides on Boss Tweed and Tammany Hall (Political Machines), students were working on a short answer question based on the political cartoon, “The Protector of Industries.” This was from the original course description.
After collecting the short answers I gave students three political cartoons about Boss Tweed. We spent a few minutes discussing the first one and students worked on their own for the last two before we reviewed them. The students seemed to have a good grasp of the meaning of the political cartoons.
For the last five minutes of class, we reviewed four old multiple-choice questions from period 4.
