Brenna Hughes -- Child Labor of Late 1800s & Early 1900s
Omro Middle School teacher Brenna Hughes will explore the state of child labor in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Her lesson plan will call for class discussions, looking at photographs from the progressive era, reading stories of child laborers, using political cartoons, and journal writing. Students will explore some of the things written about child labor at the time, and then look at today’s laws regarding minors in the workforce and how these laws came to be.
