Product Description
Was the Industrial Revolution a blessing or a curse? In this lesson, students will examine a set of secondary sources and a set of primary sources. Students will form arguments for both sides (blessing AND curse) using evidence found in primary/secondary sources. Finally, students will submit their arguments to a structured class tournament and back them up with discussion and debate to determine who has the best argument.

Included:
-3 "stations" of documents and sources (including secondary, primary, and a mini-lecture)
-PowerPoint to guide instruction/directions
-Evidence Map with guided questions and graphic organizers
-Exit Tickets
-Blessing or Curse "tournament" template (PowerPoint) to structure and guide class discussion and debate
-Lesson plan/teacher instructions

-FREE: fun/engaging mini-project template/example for covering all the (normally boring) Industrial Revolution Innovations content (Flying Shuttle, Seed Drill, etc.)
