A nation becomes great because of great people. Often the people that make the greatest impact on progress are not national leaders, but brilliant men and women of ideas. A handful of individuals developed inventions in the first half of the nineteenth century that, not only had a direct impact on everyone's lives, but also affected the destiny of the American nation.

I am starting the 1920's next week and plan to use a series of images from the USPTO website showing filed patents between 1865-1930. I plan to hange these on the wall as a gallery walk activity to solicit students observations and reflections from the following questions.

How is technology changing in America?
What do the patent numbers and dates indicate about the pace of progress?
This will serve as a summary to the rapid and unrelenting industrialization and technilogical progress which occurred in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The 1920's reflect the final frenzy of progress before the halting collapse of industrial production associated with the Great Depression. Purpose will be both a review and preview activity.

Introduction to Sociology 2e adheres to the scope and sequence of a typical, one-semester introductory sociology course. It offers comprehensive coverage of core concepts, foundational scholars, and emerging theories, which are supported by a wealth of engaging learning materials. The textbook presents detailed section reviews with rich questions, discussions that help students apply their knowledge, and features that draw learners into the discipline in meaningful ways. The second edition retains the book’s conceptual organization, aligning to most courses, and has been significantly updated to reflect the latest research and provide examples most relevant to today’s students. In order to help instructors transition to the revised version, the 2e changes are described within the preface.
