This animated powerpoint and integrated lecture provides an excellent introduction to the American Industrial Revolution. It begins by defining "Industrialization" and follows the historic course of the Industrial Revolution in north America, beginning with an explanation of economic exchange prior to American industrialization. It proceeds through Samuel Slater and his Pawtucket, RI Mill, through Francis Cabot Lowell's industrial espionage and the development of a factory city in Lowell, MA.
The engage animations accompany Cloze-style notes. Just lecture and click through the powerpoint, and the missing terms from students' notes appear on screen.
This package includes a follow-up pop quiz to assess students retention of the information as well!
