This resource focuses on the elective unit 'Industrial Revolution (1750–1914)' within Depth Study 1: 'Making a Better World?', which is part of the Australian Curriculum for Year 9 History.
The Year 9 curriculum provides a study of the history of the making of the modern world from 1750 to 1918. It was a period of industrialisation and rapid change in the ways people lived, worked and thought. It was an era of nationalism and imperialism, and the colonisation of Australia was part of the expansion of European power. The period culminated in World War I, 1914–1918, the 'war to end all wars'.
