Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.
In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.
I ask the students to work through the following links:
Race and Ethnicity
Religion and Culture
Settlement and Immigration
Women's Experiences and Gender Roles
Panic of 1873
The Great Strike in 1877
Immigration, Labor, and Politics
Haymarket and Hull House
1893 Chicago's World Fair (Columbian Exposition)
George Pullman and the Sleeping Car Business
The Town of Pullman
The Pullman Strike and Boycott
I hope you will use this blog post in conjunction with both the modules on my Learning Professor wiki and the numerous other posts in my Website Spotlight series.
