What did you enjoy about this project, and what do you think was a success?
In this project I enjoyed drawing the street, instead of having to write an essay or a writing piece. I think that Katie’s drawing was a success in this project.
On the other hand, what would you like to do differently or what do you think could be improved somehow?
I think I could have made my annotations much more detailed and I could have had a paragraph or so as annotations. I think that this would have added more information to my annotations and made them better.
How did you contribute to the group?
In my group I drew the poster and came up with the annotations for before the industrial revolution. Katie did the work for after the industrial revolution. We split the work equally and we helped each other with our posters and annotations.
What would be some of the major advantages and disadvantages of living in each time period?
Before the industrial revolution life was probably very hard because you had to do all your work at home but there wasn’t a lot of pay. But if you lived then you would not have to commute to far away jobs or school, because you would learn and work at home. After the revolution there would be a lot of pollution and and you might get sick more often. Before the revolution there wasn’t a lot of pollution but there was not the modern medicine that they had after the revolution
Then – which time period would you personally choose to live in, and why?
I would choose to live after the revolution because of all the new technology and fun things that we have in this time period. Living after the revolution is easier because inventions help make your life muh easier. Before the revolution there was not a lot of fun things to do in your life and you would just have to sit at home and work. After the revolution there are more things to do and you can go to school and learn and do things other than a boring job that you don’t want to do.
What are some ways these maps would have been the same or been different if they showed your own country
Our poster showed America which is where I come from, but if our map showed Japan it would have looked very different. Before the revolution the buildings would have very different designs and they would have different types of clothes and different customs. After the revolution many things would be the same because people traveled more often so the cultures would have mixed together a bit. Some cultures would stay intact but the societies would shift to being more european.
