Major Issues

Now that you have a topic, you'll need to find out what the major issues are that this movement was trying to address or solve.

Since reforming something means to change it and make it better, you should ask yourself what things people were trying to change in this movement. What did they see that they thought was wrong? What did they hope to make better?

One of your circles must be about what was happening in the United States at the time (contribution/context) to make this reform movement happen.

Remember - at this point you will need to start gathering citation information for sources you use so you can include them in your bibliography. (See the Bibliography section for more information.)
