The Industrial Revolution (by the books)

To read a brief overview of my history-teaching method, click here.  And remember: These lists are not intended to be all-inclusive.  They are a jumping off point for your own walk through history. 


When we studied the Industrial Revolution, I found it most helpful to read a brief overview of the period and then simply read biographies of some of the fascinating minds behind the era.  The possibilities are endless!
