This packet of 12 American Culture Handouts covers several dimensions of American culture from 1900-2019, broken into 10 year segments. Each handout includes:
-A list of interesting events
-Movies/TV Shows [that display life during the decades]
-Additional resource to check out clothing during the decades
-Digitally drawn render of fashion from the decade
I created this handout set for my "Decades of Fashion" project, but it can be useful for any historical study of American life and culture from 1900-2019. Movies and TV shows are mostly modern but show accurate (or mostly accurate) renditions of life during each time period. Students can choose anything off of each handout to further research for a class project, to illustrate historical periods, and countless other classroom and homeschool uses!
