Dear Educators,
We are pleased to present 11 stories that reflect significant historical events and people throughout the history of Milwaukee. These stories contribute to the “Making of Milwaukee” (MOM) on-line curriculum that helps students unpack the “Making of Milwaukee” video chapter series produced by Milwaukee Public Television and based on John Gurda’s book by the same name.

Each story’s title page notes its historical time period, the MOM video and curriculum chapter alignments, and the story’s genre.

Click on the titles below to access the stories. They can be printed in color or in black and white for student use:
