Over the past few weeks Hye-Won and I have been working on a project where we have to support child labor. We have developed a script and have presented it to our class. I think I could have done a lot more to improve my speech. I thought that I could have written more facts that could support child labor. I thought that most of the ideas that I contributed were not used, and when I had something to add it was not really considered or used. I thought a lot of our facts could be contradicted, and I thought some of the facts we had could actually be used against child labor. I think that I would bring up the fact that the children in the factories are usually sent their by their parents because they don’t have enough money to afford education and food. Though the children are treated with abuse, they still get something out of it. They still learn from it. I thought that my tone was sort of mono tone. It didn’t have an emotional tone to it. I thought that I could have done a lot better with that. Though we did have a few pieces of evidence I felt that my performance was not as good as it could have been.
During the process of finding information I used http://www2.needham.k12.ma.us/nhs/cur/Baker_00/2002_p7/ak_p7/childlabor.html
(Hye-Won also used sites in Koren…but I couldn’t understand them…so these are the english ones)
My argument was supporting child labor. Child labor is good in a way. Children were a lot better at working and they had a lot more energy than adults. Children were cheaper than adults and they made a good effort at what they did. No, I don’t think they would have. I think that the children had a big influence on child labor. Children created the inventions and kept everything running. The children of the industrial revolution were a huge influence and they should take most of the credit.
