What We Did Today:

Students discussed Chapter 12, Section 2 and used a note-taking guide/summary sheet to help with summarizing skills. Students started reading Chapter 12, Section 3 in class. Students defined the bolded words in the section using the reading, not the glossary, to build familiarity with context. A copy of the Guided Notes/Summary of section 2 as well as the mp3 files of all readings is available at

Section  Main Ideas:

            1.         The spread of mills in the Northeast changed workers' lives.
