  • I am incredibly excited to attend the OER Conference for Social Studies for the second time. This event is a wonderfull opportunity for educators from around the globe to connect with each other and learn the best practices that teachers apply in their communities. I currently teach outside of Pittsburgh, PA. One of the reasons I was attracted to the OER Project is its wonderful examination of The Industrial Revolution in Era 6, The Long Ninteenth Century. Due to its abundant natural resources in coal, timber and iron, Pittsburgh was truly at the epicenter of the Industrial Revolution. Of course, the city is so proud of its history their football team, The Steelers, were an important symbol of the city particularly in the 1970s. They still are today. Many of our students have relatives that worked in the industry and, still do, so this is an issue that continues to be an important part of our students' lives. As our learners' study the impact of the Industrial Revolution globally, they can relate to the causes and effects that have impacted other communities, as well as their own. Below is a picture of our student work. The picture features the child labor struggle that occured as a result of the Sadler Report and the comparison of Egypt and Japan as both countries industrialized. Looking forward to discussing these and other topics with all of you soon! - Jeff from Pittsburgh, PA.
