Rhode Island History journal lessons

In this page, we have three lessons using journal articles from Rhode Island History that complement this module, “They Didn’t Shut Up: Women Labor Organizers,” in which Al Sisti, a retired steelworker, reminisces about Anne Burlak, a union activist, “A Call to Arms” about Thomas Wilson Dorr’s forceful effort to implement the People’s Constitution, and “The Dorriad,” in which students analyze a poem for further exploration of the Dorr Rebellion.
