Ard Times by Charles Dickens. Write an argumentative essay.

The essay is about an argument made that has to do with Hard Times by Charles Dickens. We were allowed to pick anything to argue that was related to the book.

-The thesis of the paper is: In Hard Times, Charles Dickens critiques the impact that the pragmatism of the Industrial Age had on education, marriage, and society. (with the typical paragraph or two used to support each of those three points)

-Quotes used from the book are encouraged, a minimum of 3 direct quotes required.
-quotes can be used heavily. the teacher just wants the quotes to be used to further a point we were making, rather than basing a paragraph off of a quote.
