Product Description
During the Industrial Revolution (1890-1920), the Progressive activists countered the capitalist exploitation of labor by fighting for reforms to benefit workers, health care and education. This lesson focuses on the experience of children, particularly foundling children, who were placed out in the American west during 1854-1929. Approximately 150,000 to 200,000 “orphaned” children were moved out west by the Children’s Aid Society and the eastern Foundling Hospitals. Once there, the children were rehomed or otherwise indentured into agricultural communities who were in need of work hands for farm labor. The progressive movements, led by the trade unions, were ultimately responsible for putting an end to child labor and trafficking in the United States by advocating for reforms that enacted legislation on behalf of children's rights and protective services. This comprehensive lesson includes the formal lesson plan and a beautiful PDF power point with photographs, primary sources, personal letters, and well informed historic content material. The lesson also includes a Document Based Question (DBQ) activity with primary sources, essential and guided questions. This lesson on children's rights is at the center of my academic interest and remains very close to my heart. It was made with immense scholarly research, consideration, care and love.
