Essential Question: Did the Industrial Revolution create more problems than it solved?
Agenda: Today we look at the sources of most American clothing and discover it is from abroad, primarily Southeast Asia and Central America and some Caribbean islands. Then we read what happened to workers at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company in 1911 and draw some conclusions as to why so many of our clothes are not made domestically.
Homework: Select one cartoon from 8 provided about factory farming (below). Describe it, explain the joke, and react positively or negatively with reasons for your feelings, in 3 paragraphs. Add an introduction and conclusion for extra credit. Factory Farming Cartoon Analysis is due Monday, November 11, 2019.
