Lesson activities to accompany the vignette "Bea Zucco” from the acclaimed Knowledge Network series; Working People: A History of Labour in British Columbia produced by Landrock Entertainment. The lesson examines the work of Bea Zucco who championed the rights of workers afflicted by occupation related illnesses following the death of her husband who had been exposed to asbestos in the work place. This is a unit created by the Labour History Project, a group of retired and current British Columbia teachers collaborating to develop a series of lesson plans, activities, and workshops focused on labour studies and labour history.
