Product Description
The Bitter Cry of the Children by John Spargo captures the harsh and unhealthy conditions that young breaker boys were exposed to in the coal mines. Your students will read an adapted primary source excerpt and complete a cross-curricular assignment which includes text-dependent questions that support ELA (identifying and explaining the use of loaded language and imagery) and math (bar graph) skills.

IMPORTANT INFO
Please read and understand the Terms of Use on the last page of the preview.

Don’t worry about compatibility! A common problem with editable resources is wonky text. This is a result of the original creator using fonts that you do not have on your computer. To avoid this problem, this resource is created using the common fonts of Georgia Trebuchet MS. Additionally, the PowerPoint version is saved as a 97-2003 Presentation, which is compatible with versions 1997 and up.

New to using PowerPoint for printable lessons? I used to be a Word user and found the transition very easy. If you find that you still need some support, reach out with an email and I’d be happy to help!
