Study Help Practice Projects


Create a Web page that debates the status of Upton Sinclair and The Jungle in the history of American literature. This project should serve both as a review and a culminating activity for your study of the text.

Use a variety of search engines to find appropriate links. Consider page design as well as content. A well-designed page helps you organize your own thoughts as well as provide easier access for others. This project has two major steps:

1. Explore the life of Upton Sinclair, the history of unions and strikes, the popular response to The Jungle, and criticism about the literary quality of The Jungle.

2. Use the information you find to present a "pros and cons" look at The Jungle to determine the place you think The Jungle should have in American literature.
