Lesson activities to accompany the DVD "These were the reasons” produced by Howie Smith which has been widely distributed at Workshops of the Labour History Project. The 10 chapters of the DVD explores the events and issues that shaped the labour movement in British Columbia throughout the 20th century. Additionally, the film 'explores the relationships of government and labour, and the role of unions in our society.' 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.
