2.07 U.S. History
Miranda Butterfield Mrs. Finora's Class
Identify three social problems, such as child labor or tenement housing, discussed in the lesson and research ways in which government regulations or organizations have helped address these issues. Use this information to complete the Social Problems and Solutions Chart.
Explore the Interview Learning Object to learn more about the steps involved in conducting an interview. Select a community worker or volunteer to interview about one of the social issues you researched. Be sure to use the Interview Learning Object as a guide to learn how to contact a volunteer and conduct an interview.
Prepare questions for your interview. You will need at least 10 questions. Eight questions have been provided. Create at least two additional questions to round out the list.
Set up a phone or in-person interview with your volunteer, and conduct your interview at the scheduled time. Remember, if you are meeting your volunteer in person, you should arrange the meeting in a public place and with your parent or guardian's permission.
Create a written report or presentation that reflects the information obtained from the interview. You may write a traditional report or use Web 2.0 tools to create a unique presentation. Your product should explain a social issue that the interviewee cares about and describe the reasons, rewards, and impacts of the interviewee's volunteerism.
Child Labor
Dylan Butterfield
What are your reasons for volunteering?
I volunteer because I like helping the community and being apart of something that is respected.
What is the purpose of the organization for which you volunteer?
The purpose of the organization that I was in helped create law abiding citizens.
What duties do you perform to aid the organization?
It depended on your rank in the program. If I was squad leader I was in charge of informing my squad on what we needed to do during the project.
Why is such an organization needed in your community?
Well JROTC is a class at school and each class had a organization that they donated to. The class I was in donated to the woman's center. We donated diapers, bottles, formula, toys, clothes, and wipes.
What rewards do you receive from your volunteer work?
We receive ribbons that we wear on our uniform every Wednesday.
What challenges are faced by volunteers in your organization?
I have not faced any challenges by other volunteers because we all work together.
What has volunteer work helped you learn about yourself?
I have learned that volunteering helps me feel good about myself. Just knowing that I can help make a difference is a good feeling.
What have you done that you feel has significantly touched the life of another person.
The donations to the Woman's center has definatly touched the life of another person or 2. The woman and the baby have both been touched because the mom didn't have enough money to fully support her child and now she doesn't have to pay as much for everything.
Poor Immigrants
The immigrants that made it to the U.S did not have anywhere to go. They settled in poor neighborhoods.

In the Industrial Age children were sent to work in the factories with little or no pay. They worked in poor environments. They were introduced to cigarettes and alcohol while working as well.
In 1900 18% of American workers were under the age of 16.
Tenement Housing
Tenements were usually cheap, crowded, and unsanitary. Most of them did not have indoor plumbing or proper ventilation. The only rooms that had light were the ones at street light level. Industries and housing were located side-by-side therefore air and water pollution became serious health hazards. Overcrowding, poverty, and unhealthy conditions characterized the tenement slums where many of the new city residents started their new life.
How was the problem addressed in the Industrial Age?
A cholera epidemic in 1849 took some 5,000 lives, many of them poor people living in overcrowded housing. The Tenement House Act of 1867 legally defined a tenement for the first time and set construction regulations; among these were the requirement of one toilet (or privy) per 20 people.Two major studies of tenements were completed in the 1890s, and in 1901 city officials passed the Tenement House Law, which effectively outlawed the construction of new tenements on 25-foot lots and mandated improved sanitary conditions, fire escapes and access to light. Under the new law–which in contrast to past legislation would actually be enforced–pre-existing tenement structures were updated, and more than 200,000 new apartments were built over the next 15 years, supervised by city authorities.
Was tenement housing addressed successfully?
The tenement housing was addressed successfully because they made tenement housing go by government/ federal standards therefore they were livable.
Is the Tenement Housing still an issue today?
In Chicago all of the old tenement houses are demolished and the old tenement houses where made into museums.
I completed the interview with my brother Dylan Butterfield.

How was child labor addressed in the Industrial Age?
The educational reformers of the mid-nineteenth century convinced many among the native-born population that primary school education was a necessity for both personal fulfillment and the advancement of the nation. This led several states to establish a minimum wage for labor and minimal requirements for school attendance.
Was Child Labor addressed successfully?
It was not because in the 1840's to the 1850's Irish and European immigrants brought in a lot of kids and therefore built new places that needed employees. Therefore kids were put to work as well.
Is Child Labor still an issue today?
Child Labor is not a severe issue today in the United States, but in other countries it is still an issue.

How was the problem addressed in the industrial age?
The Social Gospel movement was held. The social movement was where Christians were urged to improve social conditions for those less fortunate
Was the problem fixed and is it still an issue today?
The problem was fixed because they held settlement houses to help the poor people and give them healthy living conditions. We do have poor homeless people living in our communities still. They have shelters open especially in the winter for them to came and stay.
He volunteered while in JROTC.
