IMPORTANT: It is crucial that you read and re-read “More About Discussion Boards” under the “Syllabus & Course Info” tab before beginning.  (I’ll put the discussion instructions below.)

Background: In this module you learned that industrialization was a driving factor for immigration during the 2nd half of the 19th century and into the early 20th century.  Industrial expansion created jobs, brought immigrants, and resulted in increased urbanization.  It could be argued that industrialization had both positive and negative effects on the United States.

Prompt: Comparatively, how have other nations of the world been altered by their own industrialization for both good and ill?  Compare your findings to what you have learned in this module.
