The Great Strike - Student Edition

In the full-color Student Edition, students read an engaging narrative of the major events of the strike. They meet the seasoned labor leaders who helped organize thousands of workers— many of them recent immigrants speaking a dozen different languages—into a unified force for change. Students also meet some of the teenagers who left school to take grueling factory jobs, earning a few dollars a week to keep food on their families’ tables. Photographs, maps, and graphs support the text on every page. Side-column notes and questions provide point-of-use support. For more information...
