Day 80--

Learning Target ImageWhat will I be able to do when I've finished this lesson?How will I  accomplish this task?  How will I show that I have done this?How well will I have to do this?
 I will be able to understand how the  Industrial Revolution led to changes in many areas of people's lives.I will use my own notes and assignments to take my unit test.  I will take an open-note unit testThis is a summative assessment and will have an impact on my course grade. 


Today you'll take your Unit Test.
 

It's open-note, so get all your assignments together and/or open on your Chromebook so you're ready to go. 

If you have questions during the test, please raise your hand.


When finished with the test, turn your attention to the written assessment, due tomorrow. 
Remember, you're trying to answer the question:

How do new inventions and technologies lead to geographic, economic, and social changes in the way people live their lives?

If you're still collecting information on your review chart to help you figure out how you'll answer it, you may want to return to last week's assignment pages (Friday's has links for primary sources; Thursday's has links to other websites).

But if you're done with that and are wondering how to get started, here are some ideas for how you might organize your writing.

To answer the question completely, you'll need to deal with geographic, economic, and social changes while you show you understand the larger issues of the Industrial Revolution. So here are two ways you could organize your written response.**

** These are only 2 suggested ways you could organize your response. There are others, so feel free to approach it however you wish.
BUT whatever approach you use, make sure you:
  • include properly formatted citations for ALL outside information
  • include and explain at least ONE primary source in the essay
  • use transitions and framing sentences to show how your information supports your thesis statement
  • use unit vocabulary terms when appropriate
  • proofread / edit your finished writing before handing it in to the Assessment DropBox
See the scoring rubric for more information about what you need to include to earn your best score.
