1 Analyzing Technology of the Gilded Age

The information I have gathered this far in class has let me know that almost every student in my class has an Instagram account.  I will ask students to take a picture of a piece of technology that was either invented in the Gilded Age, or a picture of a piece of technology that has been improved on since the Gilded Age.  I will ask them to either show me in class, or print off a screenshot of their photo.  Students of this age speak about Instagram and photos quite often.  I think they will enjoy this project because it incorporates something that they like doing, that they can share with others.
