This is part of Reading Through History's unit covering the Roaring Twenties. In this download there are four separate lessons dealing with the rise of popular entertainment in the 1920s. The first lesson covers the impact of the movie industry and popular dance crazes in the 1920s. The next three lessons cover the impact of sports on the decade, with lessons covering Babe Ruth, Jack Dempsey, and Bobby Jones. For each lesson there is a one page reading activity followed by reading comprehension questions, guided reading activities, vocabulary activities, student summaries, and a student response essay question. This download includes enough material to cover up to four days in a standard 50 minute class period.
*My students typically complete the work in about 30 minutes. This provides for 10 to 15 minutes of discussion/intro prior to the assignment.
