All our videos teach through the power of story to make history relevant and interesting for students. In this lesson, students learn about the causes and early Progressive Movement through the story of the tragic day at the Triangle Factory Fire that killed 146 workers. They learn what happened, what caused it and how it led to more progressive reforms that transformed the nation. ✅ The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still interesting.
A History Detective Activity
After the video, notes, and quiz, students read a secondary source on what happened at the Triangle Factory Fire to think about who is to blame for the tragedy. They gather evidence and conduct ‘history-detective’ work to determine who is most responsible and then develop progressive reforms to ensure such tragedies won’t happen again.
