Utah Core Standards

UT.USI. UNITED STATES HISTORY I
USI.5. THE DEVELOPMENT OF POLITICAL INSTITUTIONS AND PROCESSES (Ca. 1783–1861)
The United States’ constitutional republic and the political systems that Americans are familiar with took shape as the Constitution was interpreted and applied. Reformers have worked to ensure that increasing numbers and classes of people enjoy the rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. Opposing political parties have worked to mold the leadership, laws, and policies of the new nation in order to fit their vision of America. The first half of the nineteenth century was rich with examples of these organizing efforts that have set precedents still followed in the 21st century.
USI.5.1. Students will use evidence to document the development and evolution of the American political party system and explain the historic and current roles of political parties.
UT.USII. UNITED STATES HISTORY II
USII.2. REFORM MOVEMENTS (Ca. 1880–1920)
Industrialization and urbanization changed American society in fundamental ways. Reform movements grew in response to these new realities. Urban settings made it easier for people to organize reform movements and recruit new members. The women’s suffrage movement, the Progressive movement, the rise of the temperance movement, and the growth of a number of additional labor, health, and educational reform movements developed as individuals and groups worked to solve society’s new challenges.
USII.2.3. Students will evaluate the methods reformers used to bring about change, such as imagery, unions, associations, writings, ballot initiatives, recalls, and referendums.
