Learning to Be Consumers: The Emergence of Catalogs and Advertising

Students compare the prices and ways of marketing consumer goods in the last part of the 19th century and the early part of the 20th century with the prices and ways of marketing today. They analyze current and past advertising and marketing to develop an appreciation of how much or how little things have changed in today's society.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
