William S. Pretzer (Project Director: August 2005 to present)
America's Industrial Revolution

Two one-week workshops for 80 school teachers on America's Industrial Revolution, held at Henry Ford's Greenfield Village, the Henry Ford Museum, the Benson Ford Research Center, and the Ford Rouge Factory.

The Henry Ford, a National Historic Landmark, seeks funding for a second year of teacher workshops on America's Industrial Revolution. Five themes will be explored: the transition from home to factory; mechanization of agriculture; impact of steam on transportation; increasing impact of science and invention; the assembly line method of mass production. Teachers will have discussions with five scholars, visit the Ford Rouge plant and 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 intellectual growth.
