I’ve written a lot about the Stanford History Group (it’s on The Best Resources For Using Primary Sources). They’ve just released a new lesson plan on Child Labor. Here’s how they describe it:
Lewis Hine shot hundreds of photographs that exposed the working conditions facing thousands of child laborers in the first two decades of the twentieth century. His powerful images shed light on a world largely hidden from most middle-class Americans and influenced public debate about child labor laws.

I’m adding it to The Best Resources For The World Day Against Child Labor.
Putting Your Ideas into Action: Instructional Tips for Educators is from the National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance.
