Document Studies

Break students into four groups and give each group of students one of the following document studies: Education and Culture, Poetry and Song, Hats and Clothing, and Traditional Jewish Sources. Each group will become “experts” in their set of documents and will report their analyses of their documents back to the whole group.

Tell students that their presentations of their document analyses should

  • Explain the document category (Education and Culture, Poetry and Song, Hats and Clothing, and Traditional Jewish Sources) and the sources they examined
  • Answer the questions: How were workers’ bodies and souls jeopardized by work in sweatshops and textile factories? What did the workers want for their bodies and souls from the work they did? What evidence is there that the workers’ bodies and souls were nurtured?
