Moving on…Chapter 15: Life at the Turn of the Century

Thursday September 15, 2011

We are moving on to chapter 15 today. Chapter 15 continues in the same general time period (1860’s – 1900’s) but focuses on the lives of regular Americans. What was life like at the turn of the century?

You will learn that this was an era of an increase in immigration to this country. What was life like for those immigrants? It was an era of government corruption. It was an era of continued inequalities for minorities.

Today, we will be working independently on looking at an overview of chapter 15 and defining the key vocabulary words. This will build our prior knowledge of the material as we study this section. Having a prior knowledge (a schema in Educational lingo) constructs a mental foundation to help you “build” new understanding on.
