Website Spotlight: Prohibition

Website URL:

Introductory Note:

Welcome to one in a series of posts which spotlight quality websites that I use with my U.S. History survey course students at Azusa Pacific University to enrich the regular material in our learning modules.

In this post, I limit myself to those specific aspects of the website which I find fit particularly well within our face-to-face class sessions (each student is required to bring a laptop to class) or as the basis for the students' regularly-assigned written reactions.


I ask the students to work through the following links:

I. Roots of Prohibition
The Temperance Movement
Women's Christian Temperance Union
The Anti-Saloon League

II. Prohibition Nationwide

III. People

For each person, read the short bio and watch the video clip.

Adolphus Busch

Al Capone

Neal Dow

Fiorello La Guardia

Carrie Nation

Al Smith

Wayne Bidwell Wheeler

IV. Unintended Consequences

v. Photo Gallery

77 photos. Cycle through all of them.

VI. Create a personalized email postcard


Concluding Note:
