Social Literacy Book H4
Geographical settings influence life and production in different areas in industrial societies. Industrial societies operate as human ecosystems by using specialisation, mechanisation, markets, distribution and communication networks, factories, mass production and advertising. This book explores these concepts mainly through investigation of US corn belt agriculture and a history of Henry Ford's motor car factories. How do the Stolmenovs live on a corn-belt farm? What is life like for Pierre Chardain, working on the production line? How does motor car advertising lead Charles Bernard to disaster? What was the secret of Henry Ford's success? What are the social effects of technological change? The overall goal of The Social Literacy program is for students to develop a framework of social concepts as tools for social understanding and active, confident social participation.
