In this module, students explore the issue of working conditions, both historical and modern day. As they read and discuss both literary and informational text, students analyze how people, settings, and events interact in a text and how an author develops a central claim. Students will read Lyddie, a novel that tells the story of a young girl who goes to work in the Lowell mills and explores the issue of working conditions in industrializing America, as well as a speech by César Chávez, in which he explains how the United Farm Workers empowered farmworkers. Through an investigation of working conditions in the modern day garment industry, students explore how businesses can affect working conditions, both positively and negatively. As a final performance task, students create a consumer's guide to working conditions in the garment industry.
