Triangle Shirtwaist Fire

Today we are going to use primary sources - documents and images - to create examples of muckraking. After your group receives a document and an image you should use the provided materials to create a newspaper article containing the following elements:

  • Masthead
  • Headline
  • Byline
  • At least one image.
  • A lead for the story which contains the historical context (remember time AND space).
  • A paragraph which identifies the problem(s) observed in your primary sources.
  • A paragraph which identifies one or more solution(s) to the problem(s) that would be within the historical context of Progressivism.

Who/what are Progressives?

  • Tests!
