Industrial Revolution DBQ
19th & 20th Century History – Industrial Revolution
NAME:
Document Based Question #2:
Effects of the Industrial Revolution
Directions: This task is designed to test your ability to work with historic documents. As you
analyze the documents, take into account both the source of the document and the authorʼs point
of view, for they may greatly affect how you use them.
First, analyze each document in the Industrial Revolution Primary Source Packet and carefully
decide whether this evidence supports a POSITIVE effect of the Industrial Revolution or a
NEGATIVE effect of the Industrial Revolution. Below each document write either POSITIVE
or NEGATIVE and then a brief (bullet point) explanation as to why/how you would argue this.
Then, create a thesis statement (main idea) that answers the prompt/question below, and outline
the three body paragraphs of a T-E-A formatted essay. You must create a topic sentence for
your essay (introduction) and then a topic sentence for each of the three body paragraphs. Your
body paragraph topic sentence should introduce the topic for the paragraph and make a
defensible statement. Each body paragraph topic sentence must be supported with two different
pieces of evidence (research based on the documents) for a total of six pieces of evidence from
the following documents. You should present evidence (research) that pertains directly to the
topic above, nothing else – briefly explaining what/how you would be arguing from your evidence.
After each piece of evidence, cite the document using (Doc. #1, or #2, etc.). Good Luck!
