Description of assessment
Formative: After the short
lecture on the Third Industrial
Revolution in the U.S, the
teacher will ask the class:

Evaluation Criteria - What is the evidence (the answers) of student


learning? Specifically list evidence of learning and learning objectives.
LO1 (Understand)

1. What are the 3 factors


necessary for an Industrial
Revolution to happen
(Understand)?

1. A new energy source, a new financial system, a new system of communication.

2. What current advancements


make up those 3 factors in our
3rd Industrial Revolution
(Understand)?

2. New communication system: The internet.


New Financial System: democratization of finance, people-driven finance Ex:
crowdfunding.
New energy source: reusable energy, principally solar power. (Answers from Forbes
article) Link: http://www.forbes.com/sites/goncalodevasconcelos/2015/03/04/the-thirdindustrial-revolution-internet-energy-and-a-new-financial-system/2/#2c9db35a534d

Students will benefit from the


communal knowledge, and the
main idea from the small lecture
will be reinforced.
Summative: The students will
share their notes they did for
homework on google classroom
so the teacher can see them. If
students did not have computer
access, they will have it on
paper. The notes support their
answer to the essential question:
Industrial Revolution: Blessing

LO2 (Create)
Industrial Revolution is a blessing: Increased growth of cities/new work opportunities
for the lower/middle class. Increased production efficiency/cheaper prices for
goods=better living conditions. More attention to education and health care. Increased
transportation infrastructure nation-wide. Important inventions created that would
change quality of living and improve society (telephone, steam engine, machine
innovations).

or Curse? These notes also give


the teacher a quick look to see
who will need the most
assistance during the period if
no notes were brought.
A3: Infographic

Industrial Revolution is a curse: Exhausting and dangerous work conditions. People


were injured, killed, and exhausted their bodies and minds working in the new
industrialized society. City grew overcrowded, bad sanitation. Creation of slums.
Negative environmental impacts- increased air pollution from factories and cars.
Increased chemical waste led to increased water pollution. Some machines took place of
human labor- also led to unemployment.

Formative: In their table groups,


students will discuss the
questions:

LO1 (Understand)

1. Name one thing you learned

1. Renewable energy is the new source of power that can spark our modern Third

Middle Childhood Education

about the Third Industrial


Revolution from todays lesson
(Remember)

Industrial Revolution. The internet is the new form of communication for the 21st
century, contributing to a Third Industrial Revolution. It takes decades for an Industrial
Revolution to fully develop.

2. What was your favorite thing


we learned about in this unit and
what would you like to learn
more about (Understand)?

2. I enjoyed learning about child labor during the United States Industrial Revolution
because it put the sacrifices and horrors into perspective, I would like to learn more
about it. I enjoyed learning about the viral growth of cities because of an influx of
immigrants and new job opportunities. I would have liked to learn more about the lives
of the robber barons, like Rockefeller.

On the back of each students

Teacher will have chrome books fully charged and ready


for the students to use. The tables each are labeled with
a color using either a colored mat or a folded piece of
construction paper. As students enter, hand them a
notecard. Each notecard has both a color matching a
table, and a number 1-4 on it. The number 1-4 is
important for the closing. Have PowerPoint open to the
first slide, telling the class to share their
notes/preparations on google. As students enter, tell them
to take a chrome book to their desks, and to log in.
Students are grouped in tables so groups can discuss and
problem-solve during the period.

Students will enter the classroom, take a notecard, and take a


chrome book to their designated table.

1. Once all of the students are sitting down, teacher will


repeat the instructions on the slide and tell the students to

share their notes, images, and preparations they


completed for homework on google classroom. One or
two students do not have computer/internet access at
home, and teacher is aware of this. Their notes are on
paper, and the teacher will collect these at the end of the
period, as the student will need them to complete their
infographic.

google classroom, or taking out their paper copy.

2. Switch the slide to show the days learning objectives.


Share with students that they were prepared for LO2, but
we will also be learning a little bit about the Third IR
(Industrial Revolution). Read the first LO to the class.
Tell the class that for 7-8 minutes we are going to learn
about the main points of what this Third IR is. Tell
students to take notes, as they can use what they learn
today to answer the essential question in the infographic.
For struggling readers and the student with anxiety, have
completed, typed-out notes ready for them and pass them
out before beginning the short lecture. Copies are
available for the students who are on ELL trial
mainstream if they request them. This support provided
for the student with anxiety to alleviate the pressure of
taking quick notes before creating the infographic. The
notes are provided for the struggling students to give
them access to these notes, as they struggle with
reading/listening to information and then writing notes.
3. Switch slides. The next slide will introduce the topic,
saying The Third Industrial Revolution is already
underway, its happening right now! Unlike the other
Industrial Revolutions, this one is global.
4. Switch slides. Explain that 3 major factors drove the
first and second IR: a new source of energy, a new
system of communication, and a new financial system.
Explain that we need all of these developments to occur
at the same time, as they all are interdependent on one
another to spark an IR.

Students are taking notes on the Third IR. Struggling students


and an IEP students have notes given to them. These notes are
also available to ELL trial mainstream learners.

Middle Childhood Education

Give the second IR as an example, explain these three


factors:
New source of energy: Oil replaced much of coal,
electricity was created.
New system of communication: Creation of electricity
led to the invention of the telegraph and telephone
New financial system: Limited liability corporationreduced risk to those who became entrepreneurs and
started their own business.
5. Switch slides. Ask the class:
1.What do you think make up these 3 factors for the
Third IR? Can you predict what they are (Apply)?
Allow the class to guess, then switch slides showing the
answers:
New source of energy: Renewable energy, principally
solar power.
New system of communication: The internet
New financial system: crowdfunding/people-driven
finance. Ex: google wallet, apple pay.

1. Green energy, solar energy, wind energy, renewable energy.


Cell phones, internet, laptops, e-mail, facetime. Online banking,
venom, pay pal, apple pay. (Predict that the New Financial
System will be challenging for the students to predict.)

Expand on each of these, asking students if they have


seen any evidence of these developments in their lifetime
(internet will be obvious).
Ask the students: 2. Do you communicate with your
friends and family different than your parents did? How
so (Apply)?

2. I use cell-phones, and my parents did not when they were


younger. I mostly text or message my friends online. I dont
make many calls, or send many letters. I interact with my
friends on multiple websites.

Ask the students: 3. What are the advantages of


harnessing solar power? How would this help us globally
(Apply)?

3. Solar power is renewable, so we will not run out of it. The


sun is almost always shining, somewhere, and it would be a
powerful source of energy if it was increasingly used across the
globe. We would have less pollution, and more stable energy
sources.

6. Class check-up (A1) (LO1)


After the short lecture on the Third Industrial Revolution

Middle Childhood Education

in the U.S, the teacher will ask the class:


1. What are the 3 factors necessary for an Industrial
Revolution to happen (Understand)?
2. What current advancements make up those 3 factors in
our 3rd Industrial Revolution (Understand)?
Students will benefit from the communal knowledge, and
the main idea from the small lecture will be reinforced.
After these two questions have been answered, do a
quick class poll. Ask students to raise their hands if they
would enjoy having another lesson that goes into greater
detail about the idea of a Third IR. This poll gives
students some control over what they are interested in
and gives ownership of their learning. If enough students
are interested, it could be beneficial to find time to teach
more about the topic/tell other teachers to incorporate it
into their subject areas as well.
Transition: Tell students to keep these notes out (the ones
they just took) as they can use it in their infographic.
Switch slides to the slide with instructions for creating
the infographic. Ask the students to think about how the
third industrial revolution can help us address our
essential question.

1. Students have used piktochart before, and are familiar


with the tool. Tell the students to go to piktochart.com
and pick the template they wish to use. Explain the
expectations once more to the students:
1. The Infographic will cite evidence/arguments to
support their opinion (blessing or curse).

1. A new energy source, a new financial system, a new system


of communication.
2. New communication system: The internet.

2. The infographic will be well laid out, convincing


the reader of their stance.
3. The infographic will contain at least 4 major
arguments.
4. The students may use their notes from the small
lecture on the Third Industrial Revolution if they
wish to use it as an argument.
After repeating the expectations, tell students how often
infographics are used in the business world. They are
used for marketing tools, data analysis, attention-getters,
and more. Creating an infographic is a valuable skill to
have in many careers. Instruct students to create their
infographic like you are selling them your answer to the
essential question. You want to draw them in, and keep
them interested.
Tell students that even though they are creating their
infographic individually, they are encouraged to discuss
any questions with their tables and help each other. Tell
them that when they are finished, save the infographic as
an image, and turn it in to google classroom. These
instructions are repeated on the slide, visible to the class.
Some students may have already began on their
infographic the night before, and that is okay. If any
students finish early, ask them to self-critique and see
how they can improve, or help others.
Show a general example of an infographic based off of
the IR to show to the student who has anxiety. Ask if she
has any questions before she begins, and go over her
notes with her to give her the okay before she begins.
Check back in 10-15 minutes.
2. Pre-Infographic Notes (A2) (LO2)

see who shared notes with you and who did not. Teacher
can closely look at these later, to better evaluate their

answers, but during class needs to see who was not


prepared. The students who did not share notes
electronically or written will need extra support and
guidance, so the period work-time is not wasted.
For the students who do not have notes, ask them:
1. Do you know how you want to answer the essential
question (Understand)?
2. Before you begin the infographic, begin to write and
compile evidence you wish to use to answer the essential
question. Have you begun to think of what you wish to
include (Understand)?
3. I will be walking around assisting the class. Please let
me know if you have any questions or need help. Since
you most likely will not finish in class, you will need to
take the time to finish it another way. Would you be able
to access this at home tonight to finish it? If not, we will
find a time for you to finish it in-school.
3. Infographic (A3) (LO1) (LO2)
For the students who are stuck, first ask if they did any
troubleshooting with their peers at the table. If they have
and are still not making progress, try one of the
following:

For questions on the layout: See if there is a better


template to use to convey the students answer to the
essential question. Take the student around the class
to show them other students ideas on how to format
their infographic.
For questions on what content to include: Look at
what they have, and ask guiding questions such as
Do you remember what our class discussed on this

1. No, I dont know what to choose. Yes, I think the IR was a


blessing. I dont know, I think the IR was a curse.
2. No, I forgot to prepare last night. Kind of, I want to talk
about child labor, monopolies, and bad working conditions. I
want to talk about improved transportation and how it helped
increase production and delivered goods quicker and to more
places.
3. No, its hard for me to get access to a computer when I go
home. I would rather come in during lunch and work. Yes, I can
finish it tonight as long as I can log back in to piktochart.

Middle Childhood Education

day, when we did this? I think some of the points we


went over would fit well with your other evidence.
Another question could be Think about how what
we learned at the beginning of the period about the
Third IR could connect with your point about
______. How do they complement each other?.
Continue to walk around the classroom and see who will
need more time to finish this assessment. For those who
have not completed the infographic, ask if they have the
capability to finish it tonight at home, or if they need to
find time to finish it at school. For the students who need
to finish it at school, make plans at the end of the period.
When there are 7 minutes left in the period, tell the
students to save/share their infographic.
Transition: Tell the students to close their chrome books
and to look up at the front of the classroom.
Ask students, Even though we chose an argument for
our infographic, how could you argue that the IR would
not have blessed us with the manufacturing system we
have today without cursing the working lower and
middle class? (Understand).
Switch slides to show the questions for the closing.

Students are submitting their infographic to google classroom,


or saving to work on it later.
Students are ready for closing.
Without the individuals, mostly immigrants, individuals who
moved to cities from rural areas, and other lower-class workers,
our manufacturing system would not have grown as quickly as
it did. Because of the poor working conditions, low wages, and
long hours, more products were made and at lower prices. This
set the precedent for how products were bought and sold.

1. Numbered Heads Together (A4)(LO1)


Minutes

Ask students to look at the number that is on their


notecard. Tell students to discuss the 2 questions on the
slide with their table groups. After 3 minutes of
discussion, the teacher will pick a number 1-4, and
whichever student has the number chosen shares the
main points of their discussion with the class.
1. Name one thing you learned about the Third Industrial
Revolution from todays lesson (Remember).

1. Renewable energy is the new source of power that can spark


our modern Third Industrial Revolution. The internet is the new

Middle Childhood Education

form of communication for the 21st century, contributing to a


Third Industrial Revolution. It takes decades for an Industrial
Revolution to fully develop.
2. What was your favorite thing we learned about in this
unit and what would you like to learn more about
(Understand)?
Set a timer for 3 minutes. Once the timer goes off, pick a
number 1-4, and have each group share with the class.
Knowing what the students most enjoyed about the unit
and what they wish they learned more about will help the
teacher tweak instruction for the next year.
After all the groups have shared, tell the students to put
away their chrome books on the way out, and for
students who brought paper notes to leave them on the
table. Talk with any students who need more time to
finish their infographic in school, and plan a time for
them to complete it.
