Professional Development Program Audience




This program will allow participants to immerse themselves in both sides of the battle of Homestead by examining primary sources related to Carnegie and Frick’s business practices, worker conditions, the direct aftermath of the battle, and what came in later years as U.S. business took stock of the relationship between management and labor. The availability of pertinent online resources through the University of Pittsburgh’s Library System will ensure that teachers will be able to bring home to their schools what they have discovered.
