Students read an account on prohibition during the Roaring 20s from the point of view of a German tourist to New York in 1927. They answer 10 questions, complete 2 creative tasks (one involves propaganda posters from 2 points of view and the other involves a museum exhibit), and analyze 8 images by responding to 4 prompts for 4 images and completing a creative task for the other 4 images. This would be great for a sub and the answers are included where appropriate!
Sample questions include:
--Discuss the meaning of the phrase "social ill" and explain how people connected alcohol and some social ills.
--Succinctly summarize von Luckner's first experience with prohibition.
--Bootlegging was illegal, and the government knew about it, so how/why did people get away with it?
--Why did the taste for alcohol spread? Can you draw a parallel to something in your life or society today? Explain your answer fully.
