This biography of Jacob Riis focuses on his efforts as a "muckraker" to expose the poor living conditions that existed in America's major cities during the late 1800s and early 1900s.
The biography includes a series of questions based on the reading.
In using this in my own class room, students are encouraged to:
1. Number the paragraphs
2. Read the biography
3. Highlight answers in the reading
4. Use complete sentences
The answer key demonstrates these steps.
For those seeking distance learning options, the biography can be readily converted to a digital activity using Google Slides.
You can also purchase the biography as part of a general series I have posted on Amped Up Learning: Biographies in American History.
