One of a series of social studies units designed to develop the reading and writing skills of low achievers, this student activity book focuses on the theme of technology. The unit can be used for high school classes, individual study in alternative and continuing high schools, and adult education classes. Material is divided into four sections. Section one contains a reading which describes the Industrial Revolution and the growth of modern technology. Section 2 describes the age of the steam engine. Sections 3 and 4 examine the effects of industrialization on society and on the modern world. Each section contains a reading which stresses vocabulary development and aural discrimination. Appendices contain a variety of reading and writing exercises, including a story about a job interview, and stories about the Industrial Revolution and the assembly line. (LP)
