Students will research and portray a topic from the decade of the 1920’s. The presentations will be in the form of a news broadcast. The class will turn into the Nightly News on Channel 2.
I traditionally gives students a few days to prepare and then the presentations take a few days, too. It can be elongated or shortened. This project is student-centered where they learn an entire decade in just a few days.
Some of the topics:
The Scopes Trial
The Jazz Age
