100,000,000 Guinea Pigs : The Dangers of Consumption
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating

In 1927, responding to the seemingly overpowering claims of advertisers and mass marketers, engineer Frederick Schlink and economist Stuart Chase published Your Money's Worth, which argued for an "extension of the principle of buying goods according to impartial scientific tests rather than according to the fanfare and triumphs of higher salesmanship." Your Money's Worth became an instant best-seller, and the authors organized Consumers' Research, a testing bureau that provided information and published product tests in a new magazine, Consumers' Research Bulletin. The 1929 stock market crash heightened suspicion of consumer capitalism, and the magazine had 42,000 subscribers by 1932. In 1933, Schlink and Arthur Kallet (executive secretary of Consumers' Research) published 100,000,000 Guinea Pigs: Dangers in Everyday Foods, Drugs, and Cosmetics. The book struck a responsive chord in depression-era America--it went through thirteen printings in its first six months and became one of the best-selling books of the decade. The book's first chapter ("The Great American Guinea Pig"), gave a flavor of their vigorous arguments.

100 Chart Number Puzzle Fun!
Unrestricted Use

This is a modification of the Helping With Math tasks, "Number Grid Puzzles," https://www.helpingwithmath.com/printables/worksheets/numbers/1nbt4-number-grid-puzzles01.htm. This activity was used with a tier 3 fourth grade intervention math group to help students count by tens in mid-decades and count forward and back by ones. I modified this activity by first having students make observations and note patterns in a hundreds chart; specifically encouraging students to note that counting on by ten ones increased the tens digit by one. Students then modeled this concept with base-ten blocks. Finally, students completed the hundreds chart number puzzles to reinforce this concept and wrote matching equations when a puzzle was solved. For example, "47 = 35 + 12."

Public education is the single largest expenditure for state and local governments across the nation. Yet it is arguably the most criticized. Many people charge that public schools are faltering and that American academic achievements are far behind those in other countries. In recent years, many states and localities have experimented with improving public schools.

"1500 Doomed":  People's Press  Reports on the Gauley Bridge Disaster
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use

The deadly lung disease silicosis is caused when miners, sandblasters, and foundry and tunnel workers inhale fine particles of silica dust--a mineral found in sand, quartz, and granite. In 1935, approximately 1,500 workers--largely African Americans who had come north to find work--were killed by exposure to silica dust while building a tunnel in Gauley Bridge, West Virginia. Ordinarily, silicosis takes a several years to develop, but these West Virginia tunnel workers were falling ill in a matter of months because of exposure to unusually high concentrations of silica dust. The crisis over silicosis suddenly became a national issue, as seen in this article in the radical newspaper Peoples' Press . In 1936 congressional hearings on the Gauley Bridge disaster, it was revealed that company officials and engineers wore masks to protect themselves when they visited the tunnel, but they failed to provide masks for the tunnelers themselves, even when the workers requested them.
