What did I learn? industrial revolution In the previous class, we learned the changes of the Industrial Revolution. The Industrial Revolution had changed literally everything. Lives changed, roles changed, education changed, homes changed, health changed, romance changed; everything had changed. The elements of the home changed in quite a few ways. The home was always filled with the people that lived there because they spend their time at home. The home was made of things that you could find locally or that you could make by hand.
Houses were made out of mud, wood, and straw. The family had basically slept in the same bed for less consumption of space and for warmth. Not only did they live with the entire family, however they lived with fleas, rats, and lice. This allowed diseases to be spread and in effect, the population was very little because of the severity of the diseases. After the Revolution, the home is filled with less people because the people transport to other places.
The home is filled with things that you can find all over the world. Houses are made out of steel frames, wood, glass windows, and very sturdy materials in addition to the idea that specialized workers made your home. The refrigerator and toilet were invented and people slept in different beds causing an increase in the population due to the decrease in disease. The elements of man and woman had changed as well. Man and woman married each other for survival. Man and woman needed each other for children and for each other’s work labor.
It would just be unbearable to think that life would be better without the Industrial Revolution. All the inventions that were invented back then are used all the time. The three inventions which are the camera, the light bulb and the locomotive have greatly changed society. Without the light bulb, you couldn't see at night, you wouldn't be able to take pictures of anything for memories if the ...
Therefore, sex was a necessity for survival. Children were only acquired after marriage, if the child was born any other time, the couple was shunned by the community. Marriages were arranged by the parents and the husband between a money agreement. Once the couple married, no one left the farm but mainly lived their lives on the farm. Women married at the age of 14-16 and men in their mid 20 s and 30 s. This is because the women had a better chance of survival through childbirth at the age of 14, 15, and 16.
After the Industrial Revolution, sex is pleasurable and couples do it for pleasure and not for survival. Sex is done before marriage in some cases and also advertised in movies. Couples marry as a result of love and attraction for one another. There is no longer a need for each other as a means of survival.
Therefore, the rate of divorce is first existent and second of all skyrocketed. Women get married in their mid-20 s or even later as well as the men. The new controversy over man and woman brings upon some question such as: What is family? What is moral? The answer is not known because many people have different views, making morality relative. That means that morality depends on the people who teach the next generation creating different views among people. The family had changed drastically as well. There were many children in families before.
This was to have more workers, working on the farm. The child is essentially an adult right out of the womb. They grow up learning how to work and working themselves. They are also treated as adults and expected to act like adults. Roles of sons and daughters are set and never changed.
After the Industrial Revolution, there are several different varieties of families; families with one child, families with two, families with many, and couples with none. The amount of children is entirely upon the decision of the couple. The child is child for much longer. Legally, the child is an adult at the age of eighteen. Several ironies have been introduced since the Industrial Revolution. One example is that the child, treated as a child, knows more about technology than the parents.
E1 Explain the needs of families which may require professional support. Families may have a variety of needs, in which they need professional support. Families with a large number of children may not have the required amount of living space, this could mean that children are sharing beds, or parents are not sleeping in a room. Children will lack of sleep are proven to concentrate less and develop ...
However, they are still the children and are tried as children in court. In reality, the children probably know more technology than those in the courtroom. Still they are the ones that are considered minors. Likewise, education changed.
Before the Industrial Revolution, there was no formal education, only a passing along of the knowledge that the parents knew. Children learned how to farm, cook, clean, build, etc. Children and parents knew the same things and there would never be an advance. After the Industrial Revolution, children know more technology.
Education is more and more critical for jobs. Industrialization created standardized test as well. Several statistics show the progression and importance of schools. In 1900, ninety percent of children dropped out of school. In 1930, sixty six percent of children dropped out of school.
In 1950, forty percent of children dropped out of school. In 1970, twenty eight percent of children dropped out of school. And finally in 2000, only five percent of children drop out of school. Several of the issues in society today, bring up the changes caused by the Industrial Revolution. For example, gay marriage addresses morality and family. The Industrial Revolution had changed the perception of family and the purpose as well.
Gay marriage brings up a lot of controversy over whether or not this is moral. However, if the industrial revolution created morality relative than homosexuals have that right to have their own morals and values. If the value of marriage between a man and a woman is not important to them, than so be it. Once the Industrial Revolution occurred, gay marriage should have been made legal. Standardized tests are also a controversy. President George Bush has this new policy that new child will be left behind.
However, in order to achieve no child being left behind, more standardized test would have to be issued. Standardized tests diminish any individuality, imagination, and creativity a child may contain. Therefore, I believe that we should not have standardized testing because of the unfortunate things that occur as a result. Eventually, children might become identical to one another and knowing the same things and thinking in the same way, which would get rid of negative people but also the creative people as well. In conclusion, the Industrial Revolution has changed everything to the exact opposite as it was.
The industrial revolution has many events that have occurred between 1750-1830, most of which were negative effects on the people of this time era. These negative effects are leading to big problems like: over-population, diseases, life expectancy drop, high crime rates, homelessness, low education for children, and a huge drop in the literacy rate. However there were a couple positive effects of ...
However, there is no telling whether it is for the best or worst.
