Product Description
This is a challenging set of 20 research questions for a 20th Century American History class studying the decade 1920-1929.

The questions are organized chronologically, and there are two questions per year in many cases. Here is what is GREAT about this assignment: it's fully customizable! For instance, you might use only 10 of these questions instead of the 20 in the packet. You might choose 5 of the questions and ask students to conduct in-depth research for a full-length report. The possibilities are endless!

I decided to make a research assignment that required strong critical thinking skills and better research skills and - above all - taught an appreciation for 20th Century American history.

Here is a sample question from this assignment: "The prosperous 'Roaring Twenties' suffered a humbling moment on October 29, 1929. After two horrifying days, the Stock Market completely collapsed, ushering in the Great Depression. What were the immediate effects of the Great Crash?"

Additional topics include the Treaty of Versailles, the Harlem Renaissance, the 19th Amendment, the Fatty Arbuckle scandal, the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial, the Teapot Dome Scandal, the Charleston dance, President Harding's death in office, the first Winter Olympics, J. Edgar Hoover, the Scopes Trial, the launch of the NBC Radio Network, Babe Ruth's home run record, Charles Lindbergh's transatlantic flight, the first "talkie" movie, the first sighting of Mickey Mouse, the first Academy Awards, and an additional question about the Great Crash.

Included, please find the assignment and an answer key with links to reputable websites where I found these answers.

You may use all 20 questions - or any combination you need - depending of course on your goals.
