Description

In this lesson, students learn how Progressive reformers in government used the public outrage over Upton Sinclair's book The Jungle as a catalyst for legislation. The story of how two progressives, Theodore Roosevelt and Harvey W. Wiley, worked together within the federal government is not as well-known as the role played by Sinclair's The Jungle, but it provides the needed historical and political context for the landmark Progressive era legislation
