How should we remember Henry Ford?

ThHenry_ford_1919is enquiry aims to introduce students to one of the industrial titans of the USA – Henry Ford.  The primary focus is assessing Ford’s historical significance.  Moreover, the lesson consolidates the earlier enquiry on the causes of the economic boom in the 1920s and deals with a number of the same themes, including the growth in wages and the increasing ubiquity of the motorcar.  It is highly active, uses a good balance of resources and film clips. It won’t fail to engage and stretch.
