Before the Industrial Revolution, many workers labored for low wages in poor working conditions. Organized labor began when workers joined together to demand better treatment. Teach your students what labor unions are, how they negotiate with employers, and what effects they have on employees and businesses.
LAPs (Learning Activity Packages) 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. Click here for a sample of the student section. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
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 19 slides.
