Essential Question: Did the Industrial Revolution create more problems than it solved?
Agenda: Today we look at another problem that the Industrial Revolution helped create when it solved the problem of food production. Industrial agriculture's unintended consequences have led to a world dealing with habitat loss, anti-biotic resistance, exploitation and abuse of both humans and animals, and a host of other problems future generations will have to deal with. We will watch parts of the documentary, Food Inc. and discover some of the deadlier consequences of the Industrial Revolution.
Homework: Finished panels or booklets illustrating events surrounding New York's infamous 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire are due Friday, November 9, 2018.
