1 - Read Ida Tarbell - And "The Business of Being a Woman", annotate.

2 - Analyze the author's characterization of Tarbell:

POV: What are the text's central ideas? What does the author want you to know, think, and believe about Ida Tarbell? Does the author admire Tarbell? What does she think about Tarbell's overall role in U.S. history? What is the author's overall argument or claim?

Evidence: Use at least six quotes from this text to illustrate the central ideas. How does the author use Tarbell's own words to support her overall argument?

Connections: How does this article add to your analysis of the Women's Suffrage Movement? How does this connect to industrialization, education, or immigration? How did industrialization transform the U.S. politically, culturally, socially, and economically? How does this article relate to other texts we've looked at during this unit. Include and cite a quote from at least one other text and explain the connection.

Significance: How should Tarbell be seen in the overall struggle for women's equality?
