Seventh Grade Historians Study Late 19th Century Reform Movements

Mr. Kersey’s seventh-grade history class has been studying late 19th century reform movements, including women’s suffrage, child labor, conservation, political reform, prohibition, slums, and pure food and drugs.
The boys worked in small groups to research a movement and put together a presentation. Each boy wrote a speech urging reform, and one boy from each group presented his speech to the class.

Allen-Stevenson’s distinctive “enlightened traditional” approach educates boys to become scholars and gentlemen.
