Go to the Ch. 24 folder and read throught the docs: "Robber Barons and Captains of Industry." Be prepared to discus the questions at the end of each doc. Then, create a Who Am I? vignette of each of the four big industrialists: Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, and J.P. Morgan, which includes their industry, how they used vertical/horizontal integration, and positive and negative effects of their industries during the Gilded Age. You want to provide the most vague information first, then transition to the more common facts. We'll use this to review when we get back to school in March... ;) Feel free to work together if you can.
Keep reading to the original calendar! That's the work ethic of a responsible college-level student.
I sure miss you all. Can't wait to get back into the classroom and hear your thoughts: were the industrialists Robber Barons or Captains of Industry?
