Essential Question: Were the Progressives successful in reforming the social, political or economic problems in America?

Your Task: In small groups, construct a Wiki-Page that:
a. gives a thesis with regard to the question and the area of reform you are assigned
b. provides an effective overview of the problem Progressives were tackling
c. provides several examples of legislation or amendments that were enacted to solve this problem
d. gives key figures in the reform movement
e. makes a connection to TODAY

In an effort to go semi-green and have constant access to group presentations and work, I'm asking you to post your collaboration on the Progressive Era on this wiki-page. It's easy! Now that you are an administrator of this page, you can go to the edit function and work on your page.

Basic requirements include incorporation of the resources given to you, (images, primary source documents and notesheets), but I also encourage you to embed videos, narration and other bells and whistles to make the page more inviting. All individual resources have been uploaded to the "Progressives" folder on It's Learning under "Industry and Reform".

Play with the functions! allows you to record and embed your voice. Use the little TV function above to embed a Youtube video. Include a graphic organizer from webspiration. Upload a powerpoint. Go crazy!

ONLY ONE PERSON CAN EDIT THE PAGE AT ONE TIME! I would recommend finding sources or creating text individually and THEN loading them up to the page one at a time.

You will ultimately be showing this to the class on our presentation days. DO NOT COPY AND PASTE LARGE CHUNKS OF TEXT!!! Bullet point and put into your own words.
