    What are the prices and pitfalls of PROGRESS. Students in groups looked at inventions and innovations from past, present and perhaps the future. What have we gained from the invention of...the telephone.. the computer...the automobile and what have we lost or what unintended CONSEQUENCES have occurred? --lack of privacy, pollution, climate change. Students must research and develop arguments showing the results of innovation.
    Future topics: Human body as invention: Will medical advances in cloning, prosthetics, robotics, etc. make the human organism obsolete?
    2013- Top Inventions of the Industrial Revolution
    This unit's instructional outcome is to have students be able to create an argument demonstrating why their invention had had an impact on society. Using the text, Top 100 Inventions, students selected a Top 10 Invention and researched its impact using multiple sources-print and e-texts, encyclopedias and recommended websites. They wrote notes, created a labeled diagram of the invention and created a bibliography in MLA format before writing their final essay.Students selected important communication devices such as radio, telephone, telegraph, and television and major transportation innovations such as the steam engine and locomotive, internal combustion engine and the automobile, airplane and rocet.
    2014-Future Inventions and Technology Leaders of Today.
    Students selected inventions of the digital age and the companies that are innovating today. Students selected major inventions of the 19th and 20th centuries and found how they have been updated and improved; such as Bell's telephone and today's cell phone technology. They researched important technology leaders of today such as the late Steve Jobs and Apple, Bill Gates and Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Twitter and the rise of social media. They found emerging
    fields such as nanotechnology, driverless cars, drones and other innovations that a few years ago seemed to be merely Science Fiction.
