-----------------------

In this highly-engaging lesson, students learn about the creation of labor unions, how unions work, how unions are successful, how unions fail, and how they represent a turning point in labor history!

Students read an introductory article with several Common Core focused student response questions, view an engaging 7-page PowerPoint intended to serve as a visual aid, complete a classroom skit (student text included!), watch two short videos (one on a recent strike and one that shows the successful negotiations between employer and workers), and finally listen a song dedicated to labor unions! Also included is a handout that focuses on the drawbacks of labor unions - great for a student comparative essay or class debate!

Enjoy!
