This is a great packet to use with high school students to teach about the Industrial Revolution. It requires NO PREP! It can also be used as a review prior to the Regents exam! The information included is based off of past NYS US History Regents exams.
I used this packet with my beginner ELLs. It helped them build background knowledge about US History and the Industrial Revolution. Each page highlights different vocabulary and includes a definition. All of the reading is linguistically simplified so ELLs are able to complete independently. There are text-based comprehension questions included on every page! All questions are multiple choice or include a sentence starter. Topics include:
• Causes of the Industrial Revolution
• Big Business
• Social Darwinism
• New Inventions
• Immigration in the 1800s
• Andrew Carnegie
