For Educators

Welcome to the teacher resource page for the Youth Labor Committee!  Here is where you will find links to recent high school lesson plan ideas and other educational resources.  We encourage you to submit your own lesson plans concerning labor issues/sweat shops/worker rights and anything else that pertains to the labor movement.  We are working to develop a teacher database of material to help facilitate the teaching of these issues.

The drop down list highlights our current database of lesson plans.  These were designed to set the foundation for a complete teachable course on labor issues/sweat shops.  Please select one of the four categories on the drop down list to view the plans currently available. 

Please note, these lesson plans were developed by the students in the YLC and are alighned to Illinois state teaching standards.
