The Second Great Awakening religion and Reform 

The Second Great Awakening religion and Reform . This discussion addresses the following outcomes:

  • Analyze the reasons (or religious or secular reasons) for the growth  of reform movements in the early to mid-nineteenth century and its  impact on society (CO#3, CO#4, CO#5, CO#6/Gen. Ed. Outcome 4.2).

The economic and political changes of the early nineteenth century  were accompanied by a myriad of social and cultural changes, too. In a  variety of causes and in a variety of ways, Americans sought to reform  the social institutions that shaped their lives. White women in  particular played a significant role in reform movements.

Before beginning this discussion, make sure to read and view the following: the Module Notes, Chapter 9: “Democracy in America (Links to an external site.)” and Chapter 10: “Religion and Reform (Links to an external site.)” in The American Yawp, and The Second Great Awakening (Links to an external site.).

Using the secondary sources above as evidence, consider the following in a post of at least 250 words:

  • Choose two moral or religious reform movements of the early to  mid-19th century (for example, abolition, temperance, women’s rights,  transcendentalism, evangelicalism, the Church of Latter Day Saints,  etc.) and discuss:
    • What were they trying to change about American society, and why? To what extent did they succeed?
    • What role did women play in the movement?

Then, over the course of the week, respond to the posts of at least two of your classmates.
