    Population growth chart (on paper)

    Finish population growth chart, graph, map and questions.

    Vocabulary words - students previously looked up definitions. I reviewed them and let them know if they had chosen the wrong definition for the study of industrialization and labor. I returned the lists today, and reviewed the correct definitions for the words strike, trust, and tenement. If a student did not get one back, they never turned one in for review. Here are the words in case someone needs to know which ones to learn.

    strike
    assembly line
    muckrakers
    entrepreneur
    corporation
    industrialization
    immigration
    monopoly
    trust
    reformers
    quota
    refugee
    tenement
    urbanization
    trade (labor) union
    QUIZ Industrialization Vocabulary

    Finish population growth work if needed, or review states for states test next Thursday.
    Clifford-Jacobs articles from the News-Gazette (see links above).

    Read articles as a class. Discuss the content and vocabulary words as well as words that might show bias by the writer, picketers, or company personnel.

    Notice how the vocabulary words relating to labor unions and industrialization are used.
    Industrialization Short video topics. View the videos and write down 5 things you found interesting, (or 5 boring facts) and 5 things you want to know more about (or 5 more boring facts.) ;-)
