Progressive Era/Gilded Age (U.S. History)

There is a cart of books on the Progressive Era and the Gilded Age available for you to look at in the library as well as books on individuals who were important to the era. Don’t forget to look in the indexes for information on the areas you are studying.

There is a note taking sheet available to you in both a paper and a digital form. This sheet asks you to write down all the information you will need to include in a bibliography as well as a place to keep track of important information you find.
