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'.
The Industrial Revolution (1750–1914) addresses four key questions:
- What were the key features of the Industrial Revolution?
- Why did the Industrial Revolution develop where it did, and when in did?
- What positive and negative impacts did the Industrial Revolution have on people and places?
- What impacts did the Industrial Revolution have on Australia?
This Teachers' Guide assists teachers to use The Industrial Revolution (1750–1914) which is available here.
