Workshop Description: High School Teachers:

Equip yourself with the knowledge and curriculum materials to help your high school students better understand U.S. History through the lens of economics. Lessons in this webinar series will demonstrate how economics provides the best framework for thinking about the policies and events that are part of our history.

That workers in textile factors are usually young women has been a surprisingly consistent phenomenon throughout the history of industrialization. Why is this? What do these workers gain, and what do they stand to lose? This webinar uses economic reasoning and the voices of the workers themselves to help answer these questions.

If you are unable to attend the live webinar, please still register and we will send you an email with a link to the recorded webinar.

Presenters: Dr. Tawni Ferrarini, Northern Michigan University and Dr. Stephen Day, Virginia Commonwealth University.
