Progressive Era


America has incredible growth in the 1890s due to industrialization!  It brought tremendous change to America.  Quickly reformers  began to analyze and look at the social problems caused by big business and industrialization.  Some of those problems include immigration, suffrage, political reform, and growth of urban cities.


That is just a small list of social problems and injustices that were tackled.   The Progressives picked up right where the Populists left off!!!!  The Populists were seen as a failure, but the Progressives were seen as a success, but the question becomes how effective were they?  They had presidential support from Roosevelt, Taft, and Wilson.  They also got 4 Constitutional Amendments (16th - 20th)

Here are 2 issues that were tackled!


The Progressives took on Suffrage for Women, and got the 19th Amendment passed giving all Women the right to vote!  It amazes me it took over 140 years before women to get this right!  When I hear women say they did not have time to vote - I am mind boggled!  Women were starved, beaten imprisoned, and tortured to get the right to vote!  The amazing part about this era is the fact that we are benefiting today from their hard work!  A great movie about the fight is Iron Clawed Angels.


The other is Ida B. Wells


Below is an amazing documentary about her life!  She was a mover and a shaker.  Ida B. Wells was  a crusader for African American Rights!  She tackled lynching, and put a national spotlight on the issue!  I believe the documentary below explains it all - so I will let it speak for itself.  One thing that I became present to was I want to eat dinner with her!  She seems amazing!

Adam Norris Period 3 Videos

My favorite Review book!  You can only get online!

The next best one to get, but they are all good! You can get this one at a book store!!!

A student from last year who made a 5 told me these were extremely helpful!

A student from last year stopped me in the hall on Thursday, and asked me how APUSH was going?  I said GREAT!  She made a 5 on the test, and then began to offer advice.  This worked for her.  Maybe it will work for you!  She said it was helpful to get a prep book early on and read it along with the book.  She also got flash cards, and used them!!!  Hope these strategies work for you!
