This is part of Reading Through History's unit covering the Roaring Twenties. In this download there are five separate lessons dealing with the "Noble Experiment" of prohibition and the unintended consequences. The lessons include the Temperance Movement, Speakeasies, Bootleggers, Al Capone and Organized Crime, and the Repeal of the 18th Amendment. For each lesson there is a one or two page reading activity followed by reading comprehension questions, guided reading activities, vocabulary activities, student summaries, and a student response essay question. This download includes enough material to cover up to five 30 minute segments of a standard class period.
*My students typically complete the work in about 30 minutes. This provides for 10 to 15 minutes of discussion/intro prior to the assignment.
