  • How did the Industrial Revolution change life dramatically?

    In your post, you are going to write a thesis statement. Answer the question: How did the Industrial Revolution change life dramatically? Here is an example of a thesis statement: The Industrial Revolution changed life dramatically with urbanization. Keep you theis simple.
     
    Next, give me 2-3 pieces of evidence about urbanization (or whatever you used in your thesis.) You can quote Connexus: "Urbanizatioin is the movement of people from rural areas to cities." You can paraphrase Connexus. For example, People were working in factories, not farms. Think people, places, things, dates. For example, This happened in Britain.
     
    Finish with your opinion on urbanization-or whatever you used in your thesis (reasoning.) Here's my example: Living in a city is better than living on a farm because I wouldn't want to make all my food or clothes from scratch. Amazon makes me life so easy!
