Labor in the Schools - How You Can Help Teach the Next Generation about Unions.
California Citizens Commission on Higher Education, Los Angeles.
This booklet is designed to help labor union members feel comfortable when asked to speak in schools about the role of the unions. Students are interested in meeting people who can tell them about the world of work. This guide helps speakers to prepare a successful classroom presentation. There are three sections in the guide. Section 1, "Going to the Classroom," explains how to get invited into schools, offers tips on working with students, and provides two sample classroom presentations, one for elementary-junior high students and one for high school-junior high students. Section 2, "Getting More Involved," contains ideas and information for local unions that can devote more time and resources to a "Labor in the Schools" program with specific suggestions for essay contests, book donations, and additional exercises. Section 3, "Resources," lists books, pamphlets, curriculum guides, periodicals, song books, films and slide shows that may be helpful in getting involved in a "Labor in the Schools" program. (EH)
