This is a complete scheme of work and supporting lesson resources looking at the Industrial Revolution. The resources are designed to help students investigate how accurate traditional interpretations of the Industrial Revolution are. The lessons focus on houses in a street called Thomas Street, in an area now known as the Northern Quarter of Manchester, about half a mile from Piccadilly Railway Station. After completing all six lessons students then try to answer the over-arching question: Were mills and factories the only basis for the Industrial Revolution in Manchester? To what extent do you agree with this statement? Though this resource pack is based on Manchester, the materials could be modified to any location with an industrial past. We are currently offering Amazon vouchers to teachers who download and complete the evaluation form included with these resources.
