Haymarket Teaching Guide

Haymarket Teaching Guide

This is a guide to The Day Will Come, a booklet detailing the events of the Haymarket Affair. As co-authors, we have put together suggested activities, challenge questions, predictions and research ideas to help students better understand the history of the labor movement in the United States and how it has influenced labor movements internationally. We encourage those who use this guide to add more ideas, activities, and research questions to facilitate more knowledge and critical thinking about these important issues.
