Product Description
Part 4 in a 5-part series studying the settlement of California by various cultural groups, Workers From the West chronicles the coming of the Chinese in the latter half of the 19th century. In stories it details the struggles and contributions the Chinese made in the gold mines as well as the railroad gangs. Students can get an idea of the discrimination and hatred they faced as they came to earn money for family back home, but stayed to make a new life for themselves. Chocked full of multi-modal lessons, as well as opportunities for cross-curricular activities, Workers From the West will make history come alive for your students.
