THIS POWER POINT IS AN INTRO TO THE 1920's, A MAP FOR IN-DEPTH STUDY OF PARTICULAR 20's TOPICS, AND A TREASURE TROVE OF IMAGES TO USE IN DAILY LESSON PLANS.
These 25 slides take students on a visual trip from 1900 to the 1920's. The format of each slide is a 'before and after' arrangement that shows an aspect of life in 1900 contrasted with its changes in the 1920's. Some of the topics depicted include fashion, social norms and behavior, transportation and communication, mass production and consumerism, woman suffrage, the Great Migration, and child labor. Each slide illustrates the intersection of these topics. Some reveal obvious changes, and others require students to dig deeper for the content and meaning. The possibilities for analysis, discussion, and writing are endless.
