Today we discussed the Gilded Age, focusing on business and industry as well as the early Labor movement. We completed two DocBlock exercises, one on "Social Darwinism," and the other on "The Gospel of Wealth." We also took a few notes from a mini-lecture on the growth of business and examined three major strike movements using sets of primary sources. These source sets can be found on the Period 6 page of the website.
I will be out tomorrow for a field trip. Your Chapters 20 and 21.1 are still due tomorrow and the rest of Chapter 21 on Wednesday.
