  • Bellringer question- “How do you think the Industrial Revolution affected the lives of most Britons?”  Give examples.
  • Turn to the “Effects of the Industrial Revolution” page in your packet.  You will complete the chart, filling in information on the positive effects, negative effects, and ways to improve the negative effects of the industrial revolution by going to each of 10 stations around the room.  You will only have 4 minutes at each station, so you will need to act quickly.

Students took the chapter 23, 24 vocab quiz.  Near the end on the period, I explained the Quantity Theory of Money and the Quantity of Money Theory of Price to set up the discussion of late nineteenth century economic conflicts.
