Day 72--

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 basic facts about the second Industrial Revolution.I will focus on one question from last night's assignment and try to explain it to others.  I will create a slide for a class slideshow based on my one assigned question. This is a formative assessment. It will help me understand material that I'll use in my later summative assessments. 

NOTE: If you're planning to retake the last test, be sure to fully correct your first test, complete any assignments from the unit -- and bring them with you -- and come to the classroom at lunch to retake it. 

For the past few days, we've been looking at the INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION, something that emerged first in Great Britain, and then spread to other areas in Europe and into North America. 
On Friday, we learned that the industrialization of the textile industry, the growth of urban factories, and changes in where and how people lived was just the beginning, and that a SECOND INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION soon followed. 
Today, we'll review some of the key ideas from Friday's assignment, then move on to see how those events and ideas continued to change society. 
Here's what you need to do:
  1. You'll be assigned one of the 10 sections from Friday's assignment to focus on. 
  2. You'll create a new Google Presentation with other students that have been assigned the same section. 
  3. You'll give it a title that represents your assigned number: One, Two, Three, etc.
  4. You'll create one or more slides to represent the information that you collected for that section. (Note: some sections can be covered with a single slide; others fit better on multiple slides). 
  5. Be sure to make sure the answer and question are clear on your slide(s) (You may want to use the question as the slide title). 
  6. Follow the 6 x 6 rule for information on your slide (not including the title of the slide)
  7. Make sure you include page number citations on each slide. 
  8. Include your names in the "notes" section at the bottom of each slide.
  9. Turn your slide in to the Daily Work Dropbox before moving on to today's in-class assignment.  
  10. If you'd like to compare your answers to other questions on the assignment with your group partners before you break up for the next activity, feel free to do that, too. 
How do people make an impact on history?
Today you'll have a chance to learn about the impact three people had on the Industrial Revolution. When you've completed your slideshow and have turned it in, get a copy of the reading assignment where you'll learn about two important people from the Second Industrial Revolution. Read about Andrew Carnegie and Gugliemo Marconi, and answer the questions at the end of the readings by adding them to your assignment from last night
We'll also watch a short video about the introduction of the assembly line (2:22) and talk about the contributions of Henry Ford to the progress of production at the time. 

Tonight's homework is the first part of the next section of the textbook. Open a READ ONLY copy of the next assignment (Chapter 13.2: The Emergence of Mass Society (422-429) and complete Part A) The New Urban Environment (422-423) before class tomorrow. If you'd like to mover on to Part B, C, or D, you may, but only Part A is due tomorrow.
