10 slide PowerPoint covering the Labor Movement in the Early 1900s. Slides include primary resources such as, historic photographs and first-hand accounts from immigrants. Slides cover the following topics:
* Child Labor
* Working Conditions
* Unions and Strikes
* The Uprising of the 20,000
I use this PowerPoint to provide background knowledge for the novel, Uprising, by Margaret Peterson Haddix. However, it would be useful for any teacher discussing the labor movement during the Turn of the Century.
