Classwork: Today we reviewed Far and Away and discussed what connections we could make between the movie and the class. I introduced who the muckrakers were and what their purpose was during the turn of the century. We did an activity were you became a Muckraker and collected evidence about the problems with US Society. If you do not have enough evidence, please read chapter 16 in the textbook.
