Plan Unit 7 – Experience the Industrial Revolution.

Here are the unit standards. Design the lesson, and the rubric by which each student or group will be evaluated. You are a business owner/employee during the Industrial Revolution. What do you produce? For what purpose? Who is the consumer (be specific – country, time period, gender, age)?  Design the business plan for the next 2 weeks. Write the instructions for your product to be used and reproduced. Be sure that your lesson and rubric meet the standards. You get to be the teacher!  Be prepared for mishaps, unexpected situations, and required readings that will give more insight on the time period. You should walk away with an understanding of life during the Industrial Revolution.
