National History Day

"Our nation’s teachers and schools must not stop with stories of American successes and celebrations; change is impossible without challenge, and progress cannot be made without perspective. We must trust our teachers to foster the critical thinking and research skills necessary for students to grapple with the many undercurrents of the diverse and difficult aspects of our history."

Mining plays a significant role in Utah’s history and economy. But did you know that in 1920 thirty-three different ethnic groups and nationalities were living and working in mining communities throughout Carbon County? As a part of the Teaching Utah with Primary Sources lesson plans for teachers, the wonderful Lisa Barr and Wendy Rex-Atzet have created a lesson plan, “Danger and Diversity in Utah’s Mining Country” about these communities. To find this lesson plan and further reading follow the link and go to the Mining and Immigration button!
