In this lesson, students will learn about the initial phase of the grape workers’ strike that occurred in California’s San Joaquin Valley from 1965 to 1966. The strike lasted until 1970, when most grape growers signed contracts with the United Farm Workers union. After exploring images related to the farmworkers' movement, students will watch a video that explains the events that occurred in the first year of the strike. Then, students will analyze the strategies used during this period of the farmworkers’ movement and reflect on the impact these strategies had.

Duration:  One 50-minute class period
