Product Description
As a Social Studies teacher, I wanted to expose my students to major issues of the 1920s, while not spending a ton of time on the topic. I used the intro power point (student and teacher version provided) first to review all of the information from the time period. I then selected 6 major areas of focus for the group project assignment (Women in the 1920s, African Americans and the Harlem Renaissance, Prohibition and Organized Crime, New Entertainment, New Technology and the Arts and Literature). Each group was required to complete a power point presentation for the class on their topic, a notes sheet to be filled out by their peers during their presentation, a five question quiz based off of their presentation and a bibliography page. I also required a specific check sheet to monitor group progress each of the 5 assigned work days.

The purchase includes:
- a teacher and student version of the intro power point of the 1920s
- a detailed outline of the project requirements (what should be on each slide, etc.)
- a complete list of the topic choices (sub-topics to include as well)
- rubrics for each of the requirements- power point, student notes, quiz, and bibliography
- 5 separate daily check sheets to monitor student progress
- Lesson Plan (set for 8 80-minute block periods)
