14 slide PowerPoint covering the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory of Fire of 1911. Slides include primary resources such as, historic photographs and first-hand accounts from immigrants. Slides cover the following topics:
* Uprising of the 20,000
* Working Conditions
* Timeline of the Fire
* Workers' Fate
* Death Toll
* Factory Reform
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 or the Triangle Fire.
