Industrial Revolution CCOT
Transcript of Industrial Revolution CCOT
Period 4 Changes Possible Question:
Discuss the continuities and changes that resulted because of Indusrtialization in the time period of 1740-1840.
"How are those men, thus thrown out of employ to provide for their families;-and what are they to put their children to apprentice to..." (Modern History Sourcebook: Leeds Woolen Workers Petition, 1786). "Sometimes the father, with his preindustrial skills, remained unemployed and did housework while his wife and children earned wages..." (pg. 793) 2. Many skilled workers lost their jobs due to drastic improvements in technology and were unemployed. Quite often, very skilled workers that previously had steady jobs lost their jobs during this time period. The improvements in technology knocked them out of work and some men even reversed their roles with their wife. The male was staying at home doin chores while the female was out working. 1. Because of the Industrial Revolution, children were no longer able to learn skills in an apprenticeship from their father. With little amount of work available, fathers were looking for work for themselves instead of helping their children. If they were lucky enough to even have a job, there was no extra jobs available for their children. 3. New machines were built that did work alot quicker than by hand. One new machine did about as much work as 20 workers could do in a day. That is why even very skilled workers lost their jobs. They simply could not compete with these improvements. "...as each machine will do as much work in twelve hours, as ten men can do in that time by hand, (speaking within bounds) and they working night and day, one machine will do as much work in one day as would otherwise employ twenty men" (Modern History Sourcebook: Leeds Woolen Workers Petition, 1786). Continuities 1. Women were continuing to gain a more prominent role in society. "In the lower-middle class, especially un France, women were as important as and frequently more visible than men..." (Pg. 793). Women were continuing to gain more rights. With men put out of work frequently, women had to work to support their families. Women were also noticed much more in this time period. 2. Exhausted workers continued to lead unsuccesful riots. Throughout the whole period of Industrialization, many people led riots. Almost 100 percent of these riots were unsuccesful and some even ended with blood. These people were fighting for more rights, but these attempts failed. "Their frequent outbursts and intermittent strikes usually ended in some bloodshed and sullen defeat" (Pg. 823). 3. During Industrialization, many people died in Europe. This has been a trend throughout all of European history, people dying from diseases or other reasons. People were dying mostly from overpopulation in this time period. Some people died because they could not get clean water. The last reason for death was the outbreak of epidemics, which seems to happen consistantly in European history. Specifically there were outbreaks of typhus and cholera. "Serious epidemics broke out in every decade" (Pg. 831). The end.
