Democratizing Twentieth Century America Homework - Due Thursday, Dec 15

Read Zinn Chap 15 pg 377-387

In our next two units we will investigate the Labor Movement and the Civil Rights Movement. As you read I would like you to consider the questions: Why then? Why did the Labor Movement get underway when it did?

1) Take notes on the text in your notebook or type and tape into notebook. (Notes will be graded on a 4 point scale)

2) Notes should identify the text's central ideas and discuss the following:

Seattle General Strike
Establishment's Reaction to the Seattle Strike
Excerpt from The Nation
Immigration and Labor/Strikes/Strike Breaking
U. S. Policy Toward Immigrants during the 1920s
Marcus Garvey
Distribution of Wealth During the 1920s
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Sinclair Lewis
Fiorello La Guardia
