About the Book

Published: 2012 | Edition: First

This 48-page, full-color student text tells the story of the influential textile strike in Lawrence, Massachusetts, in 1912. Written for middle school and high school students, it presents geography, history, economics, civics, and multicultural themes. It describes the creation of one of the first planned industrial cities in America, the personal and working lives of its people, and the critical role of immigrants in the fight for fair wages and an improved quality of life. Written to meet state and national curriculum standards, the text makes relevant connections between 1912 and modern times, and hopefully will empower students to take an active role in their communities. Photographs, maps, and graphs support the text on every page. Side-column notes and questions provide point-of-use support.
