To the Englishman William Moraley, Pennsylvania was a paradise. Moraley was an indentured servant who went to Pennsylvania in 1729. The colony was “the best poor man’s country in the world,” Moraley asserted in his autobiography. As we know, multitudes from many lands did go there. Did they settle in the “best poor man’s country”? Or was Moraley’s conclusion unwarranted? Historians want to know how much opportunity the countless immigrants to colonial Pennsylvania found. You will use primary sources to investigate wealth holding and opportunity in this “best poor man’s country.” The challenge will be to separate fact from opinion, reconcile conflicting evidence, determine whether sources are representative or atypical, and understand the outlook of the subjects. Questions: 1) How much equality and inequality existed in this society? 2) What was the pattern of wealth distribution? 3) What were the opportunities for indentured servants, once free, to improve their lot in this society? 4) Is there evidence that some people were getting richer at the expense of others?
By this period in American history, radio was becoming very important to the entire nation. People would spend their evenings sitting in their living rooms listening to programs, being entertained and gaining a greater understand of the world around them. For this assignment, find an Internet link to a popular radio show from the time period that we are studying (nothing modern; the show should be from the 1920s-1940s)*. YouTube (Links to an external site.) is often a good source, as is Old Radio World (Links to an external site.). Listen to an episode of the show, then create a PowerPoint presentation about it (5 Slides). You should include a link to the show you listened to, a visual image about the show, and a brief description of what the show was about. You should also tell me why this show was important, and what it can tell us about American society at the time. If the show you find still has its original commercials, those can be very informative too! For your last slide, write a paragraph explaining the importance of radio programming to the development of American culture. AGAIN, THIS UNIT COVERS THE PERIOD LEADING UP TO WORLD WAR II: YOU SHOULD NOT USE ANY CURRENT RADIO PROGRAMS AS A PART OF THIS WORK. Your textbook is NOT a valid Internet source.
