General Introduction

The TRA web site provides basic tools for student research, including a biography of Theodore Roosevelt, a TR Timeline, Quotations, TR's Conservation Legacy, and a page entitled "Just for Kids." As an added service for teachers and students, the TRA adds a series of lesson plans based on National Standards in History, Civics, Geography, and Language Arts. Each lesson plan includes applicable national standards, lesson objectives, a lesson introduction, and a selection of activities for students, grades 5-12, focusing on Era 7 (The Emergence of Modern America, 1890-1930) for U.S. History Standards.

Today, we proudly reflect on The American Century, the roots of which lay in the vision and achievements of the first modern president, Theodore Roosevelt. Consumer laws, conservation, regulation of railroads and corporations, the building of the modern Navy, the increased use of mediation to avoid war were all introduced or expanded as TR changed the role of the modern presidency.
