In this complete unit on the Industrial Revolution, students will investigate the contributions and impacts of the Industrial Revolution. They will develop an understanding of how the reform ideas spread around the world and led to advancements and urbanization in a number of nations, each impacting the next. Using those concepts, they will practice important skills such as reading primary and secondary sources, evaluating data, reading timelines, and tracing cause and effect.
Activities will include interactive and cooperative learning, a comprehensive Walking Tour or presentation lecture with chart and timeline notes, cause and effect structuring, and content, and skills centers.
Bellringers and exit slips will assess previous content and will provide a daily formative assessment. Notebooks suggestions allow students to practice organization and responsibility skills.
