Discussion question needed by wednesday @ 3pm | HIS 105 American History after 1865 | Strayer University


Various reform groups with various causes developed in the US in the  late 1800s and early 1900s; these are loosely called “Progressives” as  they aimed to use government policies or science to improve and advance  society. Also, this period was a time when the US started as a major  player in international conflicts—first in the “Spanish American War and  then in World War I. There were deep isolationist sentiments about such  overseas entanglements, and President Wilson first has one position and  then the other.

Choose and discuss (in a full paragraph or two) one of the following two topics related to the late 1800s and early 1900s.

  1. In the Progressive Era (roughly 1890–1920), multiple groups  advocated for reforms in various aspects of government, society, and the  economy. Discuss here the “muckrakers” and Taylor’s “scientific  management”.    
    • Explain briefly the approach and aim of the “muckrakers” and that of F. W. Taylor.
    • Compare their approaches and describe your feelings about them,  and relate some modern situation that reminds you of one of these  approaches and reform causes.
    • Identify the source(s) where you read about the reform cause.
  2. From the text, Wilson did not maintain his own campaign slogan (“He kept us out of war”).    
    • Explain with some specifics why Wilson became pro-war. Describe  your own feelings on that issue when you look back at it, and whether he  was right to change.
    • Briefly, identify a similar international consideration today—or  of the last 20 years, and what lesson might be drawn from the example in  Wilson’s time.
    • Identify the source(s) where you read about Wilson.
