Today, we need to move on to a new sort of revolution: the Industrial Revolution.
First, I need you to understand how Europe reconfigured itself following the fall of Napoleon. Please read Exiled and Restoring International Order on pages 200-201.
In your notes, explain how the Congress of Vienna:
- is similar to the Paris Peace Conference that produced the Treaty of Versailles (think back a few weeks)
- represented a fundamental shift in the way diplomacy in Europe was structured.
Next, we need a brief introduction to the Industrial Revolution. Let’s begin with the games at http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/interactive/games/victorian_millionaire/index_embed.shtml.
Make sure you dedicate 10 minutes to notes based on these games.
Finally, any remaining time can be dedicated to reading your books for your presentation.
