Day in Review:

Today we used the entire class to finish group presentations on the reform movements of the early 1800s. We then had a writing prompt for students to complete. The writing asked students to name three figures from the Abolitionist movement, three figures from the Education Movement, three figures from the Religious Revival Movement, and three figures from the Women’s Suffrage Movement. After identifying the figures explain what they did for the movement. Finally identify which movement you think was the most successful and explain why you believe that.

We also discussed what would be covered on the test on Monday, and reviewed some of the information that students should be able to discuss.
