1919 THE WINNIPEG GENERAL STRIKE EDUCATIONAL KIT – by The Manitoba Museum in collaboration with the University of Winnipeg and Manitoba Education, Citizenship and Youth, 2010,
Each kit provides a rich resource for educators interested in communicating the significance of the Winnipeg General Strike, one of the most dramatic events in Canadian history. On May 15, 1919, about 35,000 men, women, and children brought Winnipeg to a standstill with demands for union recognition, shorter hours, and a living wage. Their concerns mirrored those of others across the country and increased the resolve of the government and business elite to put an end to industrial unionism, mass strikes, and political activism.
Based on the Manitoba Grade 11 Social Studies curriculum, the kit is designed to foster multi-disciplinary projects related to history, social studies, language arts, literature, geography, and multimedia. Contents include a 177-page book outlining the history and chronology of the strike, a CD with annotated archival photographs, suggestions for student projects, maps, a glossary, bibliography, and artifact replicas.
