the Industrial Revolution, many workers labored for low wages in poor working
conditions without benefits. But when workers joined together to demand better
treatment, organized labor took shape—changing the business world forever.
Teach your students what labor unions are, how they negotiate with employers,
and what effects they have on employees and businesses.
LAPs are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about organized labor, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, ideas (Make it Pay!) for immediate application, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
As an added bonus, instructors will receive a second version of the student guide—in color and designed specifically for use on electronic devices. This additional student guide is easier for instructors to share with students via email, shared drive, or learning management system and easier for students to view and read electronically.

Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 23 slides.
