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 facts how the  Industrial Revolution led to changes in many areas of people's lives.I will review materials from the unit to identify important technological innovations and the changes they brought to people's lives.  I will begin collecting information in a chart that helps identify where new technologies created change. This is a formative assessment. It will help me understand material that I'll use in my later summative assessments. 

Yesterday you had a chance to add some information to your comparisons of arguments for and against women's suffrage at the start of the 20th Century using various primary sources. Today we'll begin with some quick, informal presentations of what you found.

After you've had a chance to share your ideas on this topic, we'll turn our attention toward the upcoming end-of-unit assessments:

Your next multiple choice test will be on Monday, June 3 and your next written assessment is due Tuesday, June 4

We've had only 3 main textbook homework assignments this unit, and we'll use them today as we begin our review. Open YOUR copy of:
Next, open a new document called Industrial Revolution Review Chart, then make a copy for yourself that you can type in. 

As a class, we'll get this chart started so you can see how you can use it to review material, organize information, and begin preparing to write your final written assessment for this course, which answers the question: 
How do new inventions and technologies lead to geographic, economic, and social changes in the way people live their lives?

Once you get the hang of it, you can continue on your own or with a small group. You might start by making a list of the inventions, technologies, and innovations in the first column, then coming back to discuss and think about how they might have led to Geographic, Economic, and Social changes in people's lives. 

Looking ahead: If you'd like to take a look at the Scoring Rubric for your final written assessment, due Tuesday, June 4, it's available here

HOMEWORK -- 20 minutes --
Options for you to choose from:
  • Complete any past homework assignments that you have not yet finished. 
  • Continue working on today's review chart if you like; we'll work on it more in class tomorrow, but you might want to continue a bit outside of class. 
  • Organize your Google Drive documents into a unit folder if you haven't already.
  • Do some research about one of the pieces of technology that you think was very important during the Industrial Revolution. Take careful notes including source information. You can record it on your chart.
