- Organize into groups of four museum exhibit developers for each labor leader. Asign each member of the team two of the display topics
- In addition, select one member of the team who will be the project leader. This person will be responsible for the timeline. He/she will elicit the perspectives of the whole group and write up the information on the last question.
- Develop a project development plan. Include the team members, assignments and date their work is due.
- Conduct research on the assigned person using the Internet, the textbook, films, or library materials. Take careful notes, list your source, the author, the key points, and the page.
- Determine the type of physical display structure your group will use, and assemble the materials needed, such as a
- bulletin board (classroom)
- tri-fold styrofoam History Day-type project board
- poster board display assembled in the round
- Input the information for each topic on a word processor, making the title of the section bold or in color
- Mount each section on colored construction paper on your display.
- Make a presentation to the Museum Board about what your labor leader achieved (both positive and negative) and if he/she should be considered as representative of Americas ideals expressed in the Constitution.
- As a class, select the person from the presentations who should be recognized in the Labor Hall of Fame as the labor leader who best represents Americas democratic ideals.
