This lesson on the Roaring Twenties in America and the Harlem Renaissance is a wonderfully visual overview of exactly what your students need to know about this era in US History.

The lesson includes a PowerPoint, Google Slides version, guided notes, graphic organizer, and a flipped classroom video!

The presentation focuses on the challenges to traditional values that sprang out of the period after World War I. This includes changing roles for women and African Americans, immigration changes and more.

All of the following are discussed in the lesson:

  • Flappers
  • The 19th Amendment
  • The Scopes "monkey trial"
  • Immigration quotas
  • The Red Scare
  • Sacco & Vanzetti
  • Prohibition and the 18th Amendment
  • The Harlem Renaissance

A "Flipped Classroom" video of the entire presentation and 2 options for guided notes are also included with the download!

Each slide contains amazing visuals and a simple layout that will engage your students and keep them focused on the lesson. It begins with a warm up from my Daily Warm Up Questions for US History and concludes with an exit ticket about the Harlem Renaissance.

My students absolutely love this lesson and talking about speakeasies, prohibition, organized crime, and all the other fun aspects of this unit. This will definitely engage them and provide for a rigorous and relevant overview!

This product can also be downloaded as part of my Roaring 20's & Great Depression Bundle!
