We talked about life in the growing late-19th century cities, and then discussed the possibilities of whether there will be a snow day tomorrow.  Whether or not there is a snow day, the unit 6 objective test will be on the next day school is in session, so be sure to be reviewing at TheTestingCenter.com and the notes on my home page.

We continued our buildup to the celebration of Kansas Day.  This was followed by viewing the first part of the film “Last Stand at Little Big Horn.” Students will turn in a completed Motion Picture Analysis Worksheet following the completion of the film on block day.

For tomorrow’s homework, you do not need to write out your whole speech for part B.  A detailed outline or other graphic organizer will be sufficient.  I do expect you to complete a visual aid.  This part may be turned in separately in class if you prefer.

For those of you interested in learning more about the New York that Jacob Riis photographed for How the Other Half Lives, I would recommend this brief article from Mother Jones magazine.  Extra credit to anyone who submits an identification paragraph on Mother Jones.

Emergence of Industrial America, Growing Economic Crisis, and Philosophy of the Industrialist assignment have been scored and entered into eSIS.

  • Do Now question- “Why did Britain industrialize first?  Give at least 2 examples.” (3 minutes)
  • Turn to the “Effects of the Industrial Revolution” page in your packet.  You will work in groups of 3 to 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.  Please circulate around the room clockwise. You will only have 4 minutes at each station, so you will need to act quickly.
  • By the end of the period, you should have information for all 10 topics.  It is possible that some topics will have no obvious positive or negative effects, but work with you partners to think of possibilities.
