Reading Like a Historian

One of the resources that I use frequently in my classroom is the Stanford History Education Group's Reading Like a Historian. Not only does it offer engaging lesson plan ideas but also a wealth of primary sources for each lesson, all with the goal of developing historical inquiry skills.

This week I will be using the Homestead Strike lesson plans to contrast the views of the strike with documents by Henry Frick and also Emma Goldman, a political activist of the period. Students become engrossed in the roles that they are assigned which springboards into a larger lesson on the legacy of Andrew Carnegie.
