United States History

002 - PPT - Science, Philosophy, Arts, 1871-1914 — 22.5 MB Icon description

This ppt is more informational than testable - I'd rather have you thinking about what life was like in the late 1800s than trying to memorize the year in which paperclips were invented

004 - "Class in Newport" in-class assignment — 32.1 KB Icon description

If you weren't here on the Block, and thus didn't complete one of these in class, you'll need to do one for when you return.

The idea is to research class in American society at the turn of the century by looking at one particular resort town - Newport, Rhode Island. To get started, either type in the url on the assignment sheet, or try this link: http://xroads.virginia.edu/~MA01/Davis/newport/newport%20history/newporthistory.html

If neither of those work, try Googling "class and leisure in Newport"; the "virginia.edu" site should be near the top of the list.

First, read the introductory stuff under the "Newport History" tab, then select an individual at random from among the "Biographies." Use information from the Biography, Class, and Leisure tabs to complete the rest of the worksheet.

Write your answers directly on the worksheet, and be prepared to turn it in upon your return to class.
