This activity is centered on how society and culture was changing in the 1920s. Very good for lower level students, but can be fun for all students. The directions on the assignment are:
"Pretend that you are an illustrator working for the make-believe magazine U.S. News Illustrated. You have been assigned to draw the magazine covers for the next 8 issues. Your editor has given you a brief description of each topic to be covered. Read each summary and draw a magazine cover to illustrate the topic. Be sure to use color to make the cover more attractive. When you have finished the 8 covers, complete the questions on the last page."
