Alex Kuperstein U.S. History The Early American Republic Portfolio The United States changed in so many different ways from 1776 to 1870. This change started off with a population increase because of the immigration enslaves. Changes in transportation were also changing during this time period.
Many women wanted to step out and make a difference but they were scared. In the beginning of “The Declaration of Sentiments” Stanton put forth that no one should be treated differently, god did not put men to take charge over women. Men and women were created equally and should treat one another as just. The government has fail to help this matter so the women have to stand up on their own and do something about the inequality amongst women and men. Stanton stated in her Declaration that the government is castrated by men and men along.
In the colonial days of the United States, most children did not attend school. Instead, they worked on farms or learned a craft. Wealthy children may have attended private schools or had tutors, but children from poorer families did not have such opportunities. Many American reformers wanted to change this. They were impressed by a pamphlet published in 1807 by a British teacher, Joseph Lancaster.
New Jersey was the colony with more than college which could help out the the new colonist. Sadly all of them we very overpriced that only very fortunate kids could go there and many kids who could not afford just did not learn about anything. If the Middle colonies had just one prestigious school that allowed the less fortunate kids to learn how to read and write. Sooner or later the other colonies are going to test it out and see for themselves. Once they realize that it makes a difference in their daily lives it will start to form into one big project that make school what it is in
Before 1848, America was a nation where women couldn't vote, own property, manage their own money, or file a divorce—a drastic difference from today. That's what the nation was like before Elizabeth Cady Stanton advanced the fight for women’s rights through her voice and writings. Stanton's speeches helped women gain civil and voting rights in the past, and continues to do so today. Stanton took it upon herself to work relentlessly toward a better tomorrow for women across the United States. Through her words, she impacted women’s history for the better.
Three primary periods of growth and expansion of education exist: expansion westerly in the USA prior to the Civil War; the building of the train systems; and the land grants to universities. In the late 1700s a constitutional amendment (10th) was passed: powers not addressed in the constitution would fall to the states or the people, since public education was not listed as a federal power. States, assumed the responsibility to oversee and regulate public education.
Stanton is famous for writing about women’s rights in the Declaration of Right and Sentiments in 1848 (Document 6). Stanton’s argued that if it is in the constitution that equality be a democratic ideal, the nation should abide by. She specifically pointed out certain rights men had but women did not have, even though the constitution preaches equality and freedom. “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men and women are created equal...” (Document 6).
In 1837, he became the secretary of education for Massachusetts. Soon afterward, he gave the U.S. the concept of universal education, secular schools, and education for people with a variety of backgrounds. Mann received most of his support from the Whig Party, while most of his opponents were other schoolmasters and religious sectarians, who believed that children should still have religious school. Because his ideas were widely and mostly accepted, he is often referred to as “the father of American public education”. These reforms set education on the path for what it has become
In the late 19th century, America underwent several changes that transformed the American way of life. The American Civil war played a significant role in the process of urbanization and industrialization, the rise of the corporate powers, and an increase in the wealth of rich people. The expansion of America towards the west was one of the significant reasons that contributed towards these changes. It was the time full of opportunities, and many people understood the importance of it. Many industrialists such as Andrew Carnegie made huge amount of money by investing in the steel and expanding the railroads.
A major continuity over time will always be shown in the world, even if an event took place years ago. In this standard many dates and time periods were stated. Wars broke out, new presidents took the stand, and a handful of laws were brought into place but were changed as time moved on. Even though these events were dated so long ago, they played a major role in the shaping of our nation. With the past events that occurred, these events are still practiced and used today.
The Roaring Twenties was a prime era for women. Because of the toils of many strong women, ideals were flipped on their head, to America’s benefit. In the late 1800’s, two women, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, quickly realized that women would not be able to share their political views unless given the right to vote. Because of the fact that women had basically no other societal roles besides housework, they were not respected during this time period.
The life of Women in the late 1800s. Life for women in the 1800s began to change as they pushed for more rights and equality. Still, men were seen as better than women, this way of thinking pushed women to break out from the limitations imposed on their sex. In the early 1800s women had virtually no rights and ultimately were not seen as people but they rather seen as items of possession, it wasn’t until the late 1800s that women started to gain more rights. The Civil War actually opened opportunities for women to gain more rights, because with many of the men gone to war women were left with the responsibilities that men usually fulfilled during that time period.
He uses ethos, credibility, by being named the “father of American public education”. He uses pathos through, “But is it not true that Massachusetts in some respects, instead of adhering more and more closely to her own theory, is becoming emulous of the baneful examples of Europe?”(Mann 150), by create a feeling of wonder and questioning equality. Mann uses logos when he said, “surely nothing but universal education can counterwork this tendency to the domination of capital and servility of labor”(Mann 151) because it presents logic that education will overcome the discrimination between the bourgeoisie and proletariat. The use of appeals supported Mann’s argument because it provided reliability, emotion, and
Though elementary education lacked fair education environment before and during the early reform classrooms became more spacious and overall stronger learning environment when classes became grade level based. This meant elementary children would be learning with peers who were their age rather than high school student teenagers who were at a completely different learning level (Finkelman). The advancement in poor and rich schooling improved the space of a classroom and in turn, allowed for deeper understanding of teachings. *Even Women started being hired as teachers, opening up job opportunities for them and more elementary learning came out of having more teachers around. As a final remark, there were teachers
