After taking notes on the bios of Presidents Garfield, Arthur, and Cleveland, classes completed a two-part collaborative project. First, students matched ideas and definitions regarding Big Business. Then, each class discussed two questions posed by LMD:
- List examples of +/- liberty during this time period. What did they lead to?
- p. 750—“Capitalism fosters inequality.” Agree or disagree? People with different talents, opportunities, and resources receive unequal rewards for their labors and innovations. In a capitalist democracy like America, the tension between equal political rights and unequal economic status produces inherent social instability. Opinion?
These questions will be helpful for your essay test next week, so review them if you missed class.
