For both question, please do not use any outside sources. You are welcome to use our textbook and the Addams reading.

Roosevelt, ?Who is an Progressive?? (http://teachingamericanhistory.org/library/document/who-is-a-progressive/ ) 1. This era saw large-scale immigration, corporate consolidation, banking crisis, and a wave of calls for ?reform? in American life. Many people today draw parallels between the ?progressive era? and our own time. How would YOU evaluate this historical analogy? Make sure to focus on at least THREE diffierent aspects of society. 2. Today, people who call themselves ?progressives? tend to consider themselves anti-racist and anti-imperialist. In the so-called ?progressive era? between 1900 and 1920, however, many ?progressives? endorsed and advanced racial segregation and advocated imperial policies that expanded U.S. control over others in the world. How might you explain the fact that some early 20th century white ?progressives? often favored policies rooted in racist and imperialist ideas?
