Chapter 18 The Progressive Era, 1900-1916 Part I (724-749) 1.Why was the city such a central element in Progressive America? 2. “New immigration” is defined by what group of immigrants and during what period of time (see map on pg. 729). How did these “new immigrants” live and why was their quest for freedom a struggle? Between 1901 and World War I, 13 million immigrants came to the United States from Italy, Russia, and the Austro-Hungarian empire. When they had come to America, they had imagined it as a land of freedom, but it was anything but. The new immigrants made their own close-knit ethnic neighborhoods that housed their entire community. Their quest for freedom was a struggle because it was hard to get high paying jobs for unskilled labor. They wound up working hard jobs for little to no money, never getting recognized. 3. Complete the Visions of Freedom questions. a. What does the nature of the audience suggest about movie theaters as places of a new social freedom? The nature of the audience sugges ts that movie theaters are places of new social freedom because the audience includes different classes and races, showing how everyone is coming together to watch the movie. It shows how we are all people and enjoy the same things, but we need to be drawn together to realize the only thing separating us is a class difference. b. Does the painting help explain why some critics complained that movie promoted immorality? The painting does not help explain why some critics complained that movies promoted immorality, but it gives clues as to why some believed that way. Critics most likely supported having the wealthy and the poor live their own separate lives, not caring about socialist ideas. The painting given doesn’t criticize the coming together of classes, it supports it and shows how it can be beneficial.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
