PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A compilation of testimonies by young children who worked in coal mines in the United Kingdom during the 1840s. The commission that gathered this testimony eventually lead to the Mines and Collieries Act of 1842 in the U.K. which banned women and children younger than 10 from working in the mines. Five testimonies are included, they are not adapted but do include definitions of coal miners roles as well as definitions next to trickier words in the texts. Five overarching critical and analytical thinking and comprehension questions are listed. The document also includes instructional tasks to ensure students are engaging with each testimony.
Developed for 10th or 11th grade World History II students, could perhaps be used for 12th grade students in an elective class.
