  • NTI Day 6

    Alright, NTI Day 6. This should be the last work for Ch. 24. Go to the following link and watch "10 Days That Unexpectedly Changed America: Homestead Strike"

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeuhiu9CHK8

    This will give a much better understanding of the challenges facing the labor movement during the Gilded Age and the significance of this strike for the steel workers specifically. 

    Also, go to the Ch. 24 folder and read the doc Pullman Strike Primary Source. Have an answer written for the two discussion questions which precede the dialogue of the document.

    We'll review Ch. 24 and have that quiz tomorrow. I'll also be handing you a new reading schedule for the rest of the year. 

  • NTI Day 5

    Hey guys, NTI Day 5 assignment up early for you. 

    Use your textbook to fill in the Gilded Age Labor Movement and Strikes charts, found in the Ch. 24 folder. There are two charts in the same file: the first one covers Labor Unions and the second chronicles Labor Strikes. 

    You are welcome to turn this into a Google Doc and share with me when you're finished, or just print it/have on your device for me to check when we finally get back to school in May. 

    Just so you know, if you strike against the NTI work, I'll be calling in Federal troops. wink

  • NTI Day 4

    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?

  • NTI Day 3

    NTI-3: winter sucks. Keep to the reading schedule. We'll adjust the calendar when snowpocalypse ends. Watch this: https://youtu.be/r6tRp-zRUJs

  • NTI Day 1
