Curricula
Member-produced labor curricula available to educators for free

COVID-10 update: Unfortunately, the CFT will not be able to ship labor curricula items while our offices are closed during the coronavirus pandemic. However, most items are available as free downloads, so please take advantage of those until our offices reopen and we can resume shipping. 

The Labor and Climate Justice Education Committee has produced curricula for students at all levels of education, from preschool coloring books to college and university readings, to union-based new member orientation programs. Here you will find some of our most popular and enduring lessons and materials. You may download pdfs for free and purchase print copies or dvds for a minimal fee.

Committee members are classroom teachers, classified employees, and faculty from community college and university labor studies programs. The committee aims to help teachers reach students with information about the history and current place of the labor movement in American democracy.
