In humanities class we had a debate if child labour is necessary or not.
This was my speech.
What would you improve about your presentation?
If I had another chance to do this kind of presentation I would change my tone and pitch of voice during the presentation. I think that the things I had said during the presentation was persuasive, but because of my tone and pitch of my voice it did not sound persuasive that much as I had imagined. Also next time, I would like to improve the skills of my presentation skills. I think that my volume of my voice was good enough, but my voice was not clear enough, and my pace of my speech was too fast.
When you watch the video, do you think you were persuasive? Why were you able to persuade the audience (language, tone, evidence?)
I think that I had good evidence and language. As I said, I have to improve in my tone of my speech. I think that if I had better tone with the good evidences and language that I had I was able to reach a higher level of achievement. But, overall I think that my speech was persuasive enough. I think that I should of included more evidence about the weak points of child labour.
Please include a link to at least two of the primary sources you used to get your evidence. What do you think was the advantage of using primary sources? (sources written at the time of the Industrial Revoltion).
These were the 2 main link that I had used to make my speech persuasive. My 2nd link is not a primary source, but I was able to get a lot of information about the time then, because it had information from primary sources that the website used. I think the advantages of using primary sources were that, I was able to get thoughts and thinkings from the people that really lived during the industrial revolution.
In 2-3 sentences explain the argument for child labor in the Industrial Revolution.
Children are able to earn money. Also, children get education and food provided, which they can not without working in a factory.
In 2-3 sentences explain the argument against child labor in the Industrial Revolution
Children could get a high possibility of getting injured and losing there toes, and fingers. Also children have to work in bad conditions and work under harsh punishments.
Do you think England would have industrialized as quickly without child labor? Why or or why not?
I think the answer to this question would be no. I think like this because, without children working factory owners were not able to provide things at a low cost. If people were not able to buy things at a low cost the difference of rich and rural would just get wider and wider. And not only that, from more people getting rich, other businesses more active.
