  1. 1. The Importance of Labor Laws and Reforms 11th grade U.S History/Government Jennifer Neville
  2. 2. Technology Integration• Rationale: – Students in High School are just starting to enter the working world. It is necessary for them to learn the laws that the government has put in place to protect their safety and their rights as human beings. It is also important for them to know why many of these laws/reforms were created in the first place. – Technology in the class room is a vital tool in teaching the students about these laws and reforms. Using technology will allow the students to have access to photos, videos, blogs, articles, audio resources, and many other sources that would otherwise be inaccessible in the classroom. Using technology to teach this subject will allow each student to have the opportunity to be hands on learners. Camtasia Relay
  3. 3. Evaluation of Internet Sources• The internet is full of information that is either outdated or just completely false.• To prevent inaccurate information from being used only use reliable websites (examples would be educational or government websites).• Even when using reliable websites make sure to look information over for accuracy.
  4. 4. Labor Laws and Reforms Blogs• New York Blogs• Connecticut Blogs• To allow the students to make a more personal connection to the blogs that you are looking at you should allow them to look at blogs that have to do with the state that they live in. This way the information that they read about laws/reforms have a deeper relation to their future.
