Day 79--

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. 

Today you'll want to continue collecting information about technology in the Industrial Revolution that had an impact on the way people lived Geographically, Economically, and/or Socially. 
As you continue collecting information in your chart, it's worth paying attention to the areas where you still need information. For example, if you have lots of information in the Geographic and Economic columns, but not much in the Social, then you should look especially hard for technologies that had an impact on the Social lives of people at the time. You'll need to be able to explain how technology had an impact on ALL 3 of those areas, so be sure to collect enough information now that you'll have lots to discuss in your assessment. 

Resource requirements:
To earn full credit, you need to use and correctly document 3 resources in addition to the textbook. For each one you use, you'll need to list it on your list of Works Cited, and to cite it correctly in your writing. 
If you haven't found any good sources from the listed websites from yesterday's links...
...you might try doing a direct Internet search for one of the pieces of technology you want to focus on. If you know you want to find information that you can use in your assessment, you might want to add one of the key areas in your search. For example, you might search for "spinning jenny" and "economic impact".

NOTE: Putting the phrases in quotation marks as you search will keep your results focused on what you want)

REMEMBER to carefully show the source of information as you take notes. You might consider using color-coding to show the source of information.

Primary sources:
To earn full credit you must quote, cite, and explain at least one PRIMARY SOURCE from the time. If you haven't found one yet, you might try these sources. 
Paul Halsall's Internet History Sourcebook: Industrial Revolution and Second Industrial Revolution
Or maybe you'll use one of the many primary sources found in the textbook. 
Or perhaps you'll find one on one of the other pages you've used for research. 
Either way, be sure to explain the name of the person who you are quoting in your writing, quote the source accurately (and cite it, of course), and explain what it means. 

The written assessment is due Tuesday, June 4, @ midnight. 

But before that, on Monday, you'll have an in-class, multiple choice test. Be prepared for that by having all your completed assignments for the unit with you and ready to use on Monday.
