We will take a test on the Industrial Revolution on Thursday or Friday. The test will consist of two parts. The first part will have 10-15 multiple choice questions, while the second part will be a data-based question. You will use the evidence which will be provided to write an essay. In anticipation of the test, you have an opportunity to complete a study guide and a Data-based question. The links for the study guide ,the data-based question worksheet, and the evidence can be found below.
Use the outline in the link as an organizer to help you complete your data-based question. Answer the following question:
What were the positive and negative effects of the Industrial Revolution?
This task is designed to test your ability to work with historic documents. As you
analyze the documents, take into account both the source of the document and the author’s point of view, for they may greatly affect how you use them.
First, analyze each document in the Industrial Revolution Primary Source Packet and carefully decide whether this evidence supports a POSITIVE effect of the Industrial Revolution or a NEGATIVE effect of the Industrial Revolution.
You must create a topic sentence for your essay (introduction) and then a topic sentence for each of the three body paragraphs. Your body paragraph topic sentence should introduce the topic for the paragraph and make a defensible statement.
Each body paragraph topic sentence must be supported with two different
pieces of evidence (research based on the documents) for a total of six pieces of evidence from the following documents. You should present evidence (research) that pertains directly to the topic above, nothing else – briefly explaining what/how you would be arguing from your evidence. After each piece of evidence, cite the document using (Doc. #1, or #2, etc.).
