    Please handout the Crabtree interview and the Bentley interview from the front desk (both are on the website also).  These were two people who worked in England’s early industrial factories.  The interviews are about what their lives were like.


    Students should read the documents and complete the questions on the back.  It is likely that students will only have time to finish one of the interviews during class.  Whatever is left over is homework that will be due tomorrow


    We have also been reading an article on labor exploitation in modern American Garment factories.  Students may also continue reading and taking notes on this, although some have already finished. 


    Again, I want to emphasize that it is not likely students will complete everything in class.  Students should aim to finish one of the interviews in class and then finish the other as homework.  Students should aim to get as much as possible during the class period.


    Students should work individually and silently for the duration of the period.
