Today's Goal: 
This year we have studied the many political revolutions in places such as the United States, France, Latin America, and Europe that changed the relationship between the people and their governments.  During the 1700's however, another revolution was taking place that would forever change the way goods and services are produced.  The Industrial Revolution replaced the expensive hand made goods of the past and ushered in the production of inexpensive machine made good such as textiles.   New inventions, advances in agriculture, and improvements in transportation were also part of the Industrial Revolution.  These changes would have both positive and negative effects for people in England.  The Industrial Revolution would soon spread to America and continental Europe.

Learning Target: I can EXPLAIN how Industrialization caused social, political, and economic effects on Western Europe, the United States, and the world.
