In I&S we had to make a scripted and persuaded the judge to pick your side in the argument if not banning child labor or banning child labor. We had to use many persuasive techniques to try and win over the judge. I could bring my knowledge and understanding from english about persuasive techniques to this case and use it in my scripted.
What did you learn?
I learnt that many factories have kids from as young as 6 years old working and working for many hours a day. Many kids after there experiences in the factories would always seem to go back and work as an adult. I guess that surprised me because they had insured so much pain mentally and fiscally. I learnt the different view points of the children and the factory owners. I learnt how they felt, why they did what they did and how they got by everyday. I learnt how the kids in the Industrial revolution played an immense role in impacted our economy.
