I’m working on a social science discussion question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
Unit 2: Discussion Respons
The rapid growth of industry came with many issues that effected a vast amount of American laborers in industry and agriculture. The sweeping inequalities, coupled with the inaction of the federal government to remedy injustices, inspired workers to respond in various ways. Drawing on this week’s material, write a post considering the below questions in your response.
What were the issues that industry workers and farmers were dealing with in this era?
How did American workers and farmers attempt to improve their condition?
How does knowledge of this era remake our view of a childhood classic, The Wizard of Oz? Do you relate to it differently?
Why is it important that Baum is using culture and art to make a socio-political commentary of this era?
