About This Resource

Lesson activities to accompany the vignette 'Ginger Goodwin' from the acclaimed Knowledge Network series; Working People: A History of Labour in British Columbia produced by Landrock Entertainment. The vignette explores the leadership of Ginger Goodwin within the Labour movement of British Columbia during the war years of 1914-1918. The lesson materials focus on the controversy and response to his death at the hands of the Provincial Police in 1918. 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.
