Like Opposition to the Philippine-American War, this assessment gauges students’ ability to reason about how evidence supports a historical argument. Students must explain how Ida Tarbell's critique about the company's practices and the newspaper's positive take on the Rockefeller Foundation both support the conclusion that many Americans were concerned about the growing power of a small number of wealthy businessmen at the turn of the century.
