Download the free 9-page 1919 General Strike Lesson Plan, written by Danny Schur. With or without the Strike! book/interactive CD, the lesson plan will assist educators in a "dramatic forces" approach to the study of the Winnipeg General Strike - the historic event on which the musical Strike! is based.
The lesson plan, entitled "$.25" will be of special interest to those educators that choose to incorporate the Strike! book/CD into the classroom. The lesson plan incorporates seven teachable concepts that weave their way through the songs of the musical; never before has the study of Canadian history been so fun and engaging as through the songs of this award-winning musical.
