That is wonderful! Thank you!
IBEW in Milwaukee has been holding Boy Scout training classes in labor and labor history has been a part of it …. Some 50 kids show up.
Groups of elementary school students attend the Anniversary of the Triangle events in New York City!
I used to use the "Power in Our Hands" stuff in my classes- great simulations!
This is great!
USW retirees, Chicago Teachers Union and other union members made a dramatic, about 10 minute video on the Memorial Day Massacre at Republic Steel, Chicago 1937 and youtube rated as restricted over 18. So we are remaking it, taking out the words “Red bastards”, different title but retaining historical filmed footage shot during the massacre. The video will be changed by teachers to be shown as PG-13. The link will be ready soon, suitable for high school viewing. The over age 18 version is at:

Thank you Paul!
Thank you. Great information!
HI Evelyn! CWA Local 1032 in Ewing NJ supports you. Love the museum!
I love the suitcase idea! Classes/teachers could even make their own suitcases with labor items of their own and/or from their students and their families
Thankful to learn!
If I can engage in some shameless self-promotion for a moment, my husband wrote a terrific labor book for children: https://www.hardballpress.com/jimmys-carwash.html
Thank you, Larry. I will share all this information with history teachers in my local school department in Maine.
Thank you, Joanne. Very informative.
Thank you very much. As a grand-niece of Rose Schneiderman and someone who has gone into elementary and high school classes talking about labor history/Rose Schneiderman’s life and some of the labor events in NY, I really appreciate all that has been said here tonight. Thank you again.

Does any organization have a finding aid to their collection that could be shared in the chat
I’d like to add some more resources and another organization, the Aspen Foundation for Labour Education creates materials from an Alberta perspective in Canada http://www.afle.ca/aspen-teaching-units.html
I'm 29, I don't know what Brian is talking about ;-)
Speaking of shameless promotion, check out my (sorta) new labor history radio show/podcast "Labors Untold Stories" on Soundcloud/Turbodawg or WWW. riverwestradio.com.. im also on the Labor History Radio/podcast Network.
Thanks for the info on the Boy Scout Labor Merit Badge.
Thank you for an insightful and informative program.
I'm a Boy Scout Labor merit badge counselor. One simply has to check with the local Boy Scout council, check out the badge requirements, and make yourself available to the youth. A badge counselor must complete the Boy Scout Youth Protection program online.

I've tried to find a similar program for the Girl Scouts but I haven't been able to connect yet.
