Two one-week Landmarks workshops for eighty school teachers on America's Industrial Revolution as interpreted through the historic buildings and archival collections at Henry Ford's Greenfield Village and the Ford Rouge factory.

The Henry Ford, a National Historic Landmark, seeks funding for a sixth year of teacher workshops on America's Industrial Revolution. Five themes will be explored: 1) The early 19th century transformation of home and craft production; 2) The mechanization of agriculture; 3) The impact of steam on transportation; 4) The increasing impact of science and invention; and 5) The assembly line method of mass production. Teachers will have discussions with five scholars, visit the Ford Rouge Center's Dearborn Truck Plant and historic buildings in Greenfield Village, study primary documents and artifacts, and create innovative lesson plans. The workshop is designed to ignite teachers' curiosity and deepen their knowledge of the human dimensions of industrial change in order to encourage student enthusiasm and professional growth.
