Fabric of the Past: Weaving the Twentieth Century at the Beaumont Mill and Village in South Carolina

Two one-week workshops for 72 school teachers exploring the textile industry of upstate South Carolina as a case study for 19th- and 20th-century cultural, economic, and technological change.

Through its examination of 20th Century American history, Fabric of the Past touches on multiple topics and themes highlighted in middle and high school classrooms nationwide and stressed in national teaching guidelines and standards. USC Upstate will offer two one-week sessions of the workshop in July 2021, serving up to 36 teachers each time. The workshop will explore the following key themes from the National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies: culture (mill and Southern cultures); time, continuity, and change (history of the Beaumont Mill); production, consumption, and distribution (economic changes across time); and science and technology (industrial and technological changes in the mills). Workshop content is designed to be integrated at multiple points in the U.S. History curriculum, including Reconstruction, the Industrial Age, and World War II.
