About This Lesson

Social reformers in the first decades of the 20th century embraced the new technology of motion pictures as a way to advocate for change. This lesson focuses on the 1912 film, “Children Who Labor,” which personalizes the issue with a dramatic narrative. Thanks to generous funding from AFSCME, the lesson is one of many in “Portraits of America: Democracy on Film,” a free cinema literacy curriculum using classic films to explore ideals and challenges of immigration, labor, and civil rights. All materials are available free of charge at http://storyofmovies.org.
