America's Industrial Revolution at The Henry Ford

Two one-week workshops for seventy-two school teachers on the Industrial Revolution in America at The Henry Ford.

The Henry Ford, a National Historic Landmark, seeks funding to host another year of teacher workshops on America's Industrial Revolution. Five themes will be explored: 1) The early 19th century transformation of home and craft production; 2) The mechanization of agriculture; 3) The impact of steam on transportation; 4) The increasing impact of science and invention; and 5) The assembly line method of mass production. Teachers will have discussions with five scholars, visit the Ford Rouge Center's Dearborn Truck Plant, visit historic buildings in Greenfield Village, study primary documents and artifacts and create innovative lesson plans. The workshop is designed to ignite teachers' curiosity and deepen their knowledge of the human dimensions of industrial change in order to encourage student enthusiasm and professional growth.
