Was there an Industrial Revolution? - In the decades before the Civil War—a period sometimes dubbed the First Industrial Revolution—a significant number of inventions and innovations appeared, transforming American life.

Child Labor in America - This unit asks students to critically examine, respond to and report on photographs as historical evidence. Students will discover the work of reformer/photographer Lewis Hine, whose photographs give the issue of child labor a dramatic personal relevance and illustrate the impact of photojournalism in the course of American history.
Children have always worked, often exploited and under less than healthy conditions. Industrialization, the Great Depression and the vast influx of poor immigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries, made it easy to justify the work of young children. To gain a true understanding of child labor, both as an historical and social issue, students should examine the worlds of real working children.industrialization lesson plans child labor laws womens suffrage children working

A focus of the student's investigation is Thomas Edison, because, as Nye contends, "Electricity was the sign of Edison's genius, the wonder of the age, the hallmark of progress"
