The Rise of Populism

Friday September 23, 2011

Today we will briefly discuss in class why the “Gilded Age” was called the “gilded age” and discuss the corrupt politics in the cities. You will watch a short video about Boss Tweed and the Tammany Hall machine of New York City.

After that, you will be working on the next Guided Reading on the Populist Movement. You will learn about difficult conditions that farmers faced and how they organized to reform conditions that led to these difficulties. This begins the era REFORM that leads to the Progressive Era and the New Deal Reforms. Stay tuned for more on that as this course progresses forward.

Populism – Guided Reading  (This is due Monday night).

Remember there is a Guided Reading from Thursday on Politics in the Gilded Age that is due on Sunday night!
