NYS SSCC 8.2d states that students will examine the goals and tactics of specific labor unions including the Knights of Labor, the American Federation of Labor, and the Industrial Works of the World. This sheet does just that!
Students were given the information in class through a Power Points, however students could just as easily research this information themselves either online, or in their text books.
As a fun extension activity I had students apply what they had learn and argue rather fast food workers deserve $15.00 an hour based upon what they have learned, and a short video clip from the local news. Their paragraph was handed in as an Exit Ticket at the end of class!
