Module 4 goes into more detail about how to evaluate information taken from the internet.
Blogs such as these will be very helpful to teach the students. These blogs will allows the students to actively see what is going on in their state or community as it is happening. These blogs will allow the students to stay up to date with the current events and they can help each student become an active member in their community.

Podcasts are an essential learning tool to help students learn about labor laws because some students simply just learn best by listening to others. The podcasts will allows these students to learn critical information from other professionals who know what they are talking about. The podcasts will also be beneficial because it allows the students to have the opportunity to learn about different aspects of the given topic.

This YouTube video will show the students why it is so important for them to know all of the labor laws that are put in place to protect them. The hundreds of people who died in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory died because these rights were not provided to them. Their deaths are what caused America to reform the labor laws. Because of this I feel that it is very important for the students to know exactly why labor laws are so important in America, and videos like these will help the students understand.
The United States Department of Labor is a necessity for students to learn about labor laws. The U.S Department of Labor is where labor laws from all over America are shared. Political and scholarly figures alike share there knowledge on this site. On this site there are numerous links that will provide various information that the students may be interested in. Some of these links include information about statistics, wages, work hours, youth laws, disabilities, and much more. This website will help guide the students to information that they find relative to themselves.Image taken from http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/23400000/Independence-Day-united-states-of-america-23406746-1920-1200.jpg
The University of Iowa is a well known institute of learning. The information that can be found on this site is very reliable and much different than that found on the department of labor. This site will allow the students to learn all about child labor laws. The students this lesson is meant for are students who are in the 11th grade, which means that most of them will still be minors. Since they will still be minors, some of this information on this site is related directly towards them. This information will be vital for them to understand when they are looking for their own part time jobs. Image taken from http://www.loc.gov/rr/print/guide/port-1.html
The Library of Congress is the most prestigious library in all of America. The information that is put on this site can easily be trusted and verified. This site will has many benefits for the students. The page that I linked the picture to will lead the students to a student orientated site that the Library of Congress created. On this student orientated site there are links to primary sources, different labor laws, and numerous activities for the students to guide themselves through.

This is an example of a diagram that I would give my students to help them understand why the labor movement was created. However, when I hand them the diagram the only bubbles that would be filled in are those that are the main topics (Triangle Shirtwaist Factory-Labor Reforms, Frances Perkins, NYS Factory Investigating Committee and Roosevelt). I would then leave the other bubbles blank so they could fill in information that they think is important about each of these categories. I feel as if this would be beneficiary to the students because they could then use this diagram as a study guide. I feel like this would be a more effective study guide than one where I gave them all the information because they would right down the important facts in a way that would allow them to understand and remember everything they wrote.
This link provides multiple worksheets. However I would only use the two or three that directly deal with America. Image taken from http://0.tqn.com/d/freebies/1/0/-/a/kid-coloring.jpg
This site will allow me to create a word search for my students. It will allow me to use any words that I find important having to do with labor reforms. This will be a good homework assignment to give the students over the weekend. It won’t be too hard or time consuming but it will allow for the material to stay fresh in their mind.

My plan for the crossword puzzle would be for each student to create their own that focus on labor reforms. After each students completes making their own I will double check them for accuracy and then randomly hand them out for them to be completed.

In my class room it may not necessarily be this article, however I do believe that finding real stories for the students to read will help them in their education. After they finish the articles the teacher should always have questions like the three above to make sure the students understand everything they read and that they are critically thinking at all times.

The Importance of Labor Laws and Reforms 11th grade U.S History/Government Jennifer Neville
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
