Jane Addams was one of the most important figures of the Progressive Era. Involved with child labor, settlement houses, peace, Progressive politics, and a multitude of reforms, Addams' writings and speeches can be incorporated into a variety of lessons focusing around the Progressive Era and character education. The Jane Addams Papers Project is collaborating with teacher's education students at Ramapo College of New Jersey to develop lesson plans that utilize Addams' works as primary sources.
In an effort to continuously improve users' experience with the Jane Addams Digital Edition, we appreciate any feedback that you can provide on the lesson plans. Thank you!
