  1. Discuss the social reforms that shaped the nation in the 1800s.
    What were the social reforms that took place in the 1880s? "Discuss" means you are to write an essay about this topic.

    What do you think have been the lasting impacts of the Reform Era?
    Once you've named the social reforms of the 1880s, decide which ones (or maybe all of them) have had lasting effects -- including any that are still in place today.

    How do these reforms influence society today?
    This seems pretty clear.

    What do you think were the most important social reforms and why?
    This seems clear, too. Once you include the social reforms that are still influencing us today, be sure you give good reasons why you think so.

  2. How is this so far?

    Their are 6 major reform movements in the 1800s are the abolition of slavery, education reform, prison reform, women's rights, and temperance (opposition to alcohol). The act abolished the Slave Trade in the British colonies. It became illegal to carry slaves in British ships (although many ships tried to evade the ban). The ultimate aim, however, had always been the abolition of slavery itself. The abolitionists had assumed that ending the Slave Trade would eventually lead to the freeing of all enslaved people. Education reform is the name given to the goal of changing public education. Historically, reforms have taken different forms because the motivations of reformers have differed. Prison reform is the attempt to improve conditions inside prisons, establish a more effective penal system, or implement alternatives to incarceration. Women in Antebellum Reform. ... This is a compact, readable, and reliable survey of the role of women in antebellum reform, and one that pays attention to class and religious differences among them. The treatment of Seneca Falls and the Women's Rights Movement is brief, but rich. Temperance movements typically criticize alcohol intoxication, promote complete abstinence (teetotalism), or use its political influence to press the government to enact alcohol laws to regulate the availability of alcohol or even its complete prohibition.

  6. Here is what I put: What do you think have been the lasting impacts of the Reform Era? Some social reforms that have made a lasting impact in the 1800s include abolition of slavery(antislavery), education reform, temperance, abolish the imprisonment for dept, and women's rights. How do these reforms influence society today? The education reform transformed school structures with the aim of raising the quality of education, which they accomplished. It also helped with equality for African Americans and other races, providing everyone with the same educational opportunities. The women's suffrage gave most women(a lot of African American women could not vote still) the right to vote, own land, and many other rights. Also with this movement people would no longer go to jail for any dept. What do you think were the most important social reforms and why? In my opinion, the most important reforms are abolition of slavery and women's suffrage. These have the largest impact because without them there would be way more racism, men would have no respect for women.

  9. What do you think have been the lasting impacts of the Reform Era? A few social reforms that have made a serious and lasting impact in the 1800s include the abolition of slavery (basically antislavery), as well as education reform, temperance, (the opposition against alcohol) and abolishment against the imprisonment of dept, and as well as an improvement in women's rights.

    How do these reforms influence society today? The reformation of the educational system had basically transformed school structures with the goal of improving the quality of education, which they accomplished. It also was very helpful with improving equality for multiple different races including African Americans, providing everyone with the same educational opportunities.

    The women's suffrage presented to most women (At this time a large portion of African American women still could not vote) the right to be able to own land, participate in voting, and several other rights. Also, with this movement citizens of the U.S. would no longer go to jail for any dept.

    What do you think were the most important social reforms and why? In my respectful opinion, I believe that the most important reforms are that of women's suffrage, slavery, and abolition. These have the largest impact in today’s society due to the fact that without them people of color and women would still be in an unfair position in society, and today’s society would be in a much worse position than it currently is, due to the fact that if it weren’t for people such as Martin Luther King Jr., Amelia Earheart, or Rosa Parks. Today’s society would be less advanced, and more so divided.

    This is what I posted and you can use this but make sure that you switch up the words so they can't figure out that you copied.
