The Radicalism of the American Revolution. Unit 2: Growth of Industrial and Urban America. Students ended the previous unit with an examination of economic and demographic data about the United States from Reconstruction to the turn of the century.
In this unit, students focus on how technical and organizational innovations, entrepreneurs, migration and immigration led to the transformation of the national economy. They investigate entrepreneurs and engage in small group discussions evaluating whether these individuals were Captains of Industry or Robber Barons. Students also explore the immigrant experience, analyzing primary sources to determine how issues of freedom and equality affected the lives of immigrants. Using primary and secondary sources students analyze the consequences of industrialization, including its effects on both rural and urban America.
In doing so, students explore the growth of Populism and the labor movement. After students examine and reflect upon how American concepts of freedom and equality were affected by industrialization, immigration, and urbanization, they record their thoughts in their Freedom Tracking Notebook. Students then compare the attributes of writing arguments and narratives, and consider the role of evidence in both.
After analyzing a variety of sources related to industrialization, students use evidence to develop a historical narrative about the consequences of industrialization.
Throughout the unit, students use their Freedom Tracking Notebook to reflect on how the ideas of freedom and equality shaped industrial and urban America during this period. How and why did the meaning of freedom and equality in the United States change as a result of industrialization? America on the Move. Smithsonian Institute. National Museum of American History.
