Select one of the following lists, research the Social Issues of Industrialization in the US, and develop a Prezi document explaining what you have found.  This will be used in place of your test for this unit.  All presentation links must be submitted to me by email by October 7. You must use at least three sources that are not Wikipedia, Google, or Yahoo. A Section that includes your citations is also required.
