Product Description
The 1920s saw America divided into different camps, like rural vs. urban, nativism vs. foreign influences, “wets” vs. “drys,” Protestants vs. Catholics, labor vs. capital, and traditional values vs. modern values.

You can divide your class into an even number of groups with the ideal number of groups being 8. You would assign your class one of the issues in the document. A resource is linked to each topic for students to use as research. The students have a graphic organizer to collect their ideas for the debate.

After about 1 hour, you can have opposing groups debate and use their talking points as teachable moments. It is important to set guidelines appropriate for your grade level and to remind students that the opinions in the debate are not necessarily their real opinions. This activity is meant as a way of summarizing a study of the 1920s.
