This video guide contains 25 questions from the episode of "The Century: America's Time" entitled "HAPPY DAYS". It chronicles 1953 to 1960. The questions go in order and force the students to track and pay attention during the viewing. The episode itself is excellent for a comprehensive understanding of changes in societal and social norms of the 1950's. Topics covered include women's roles, the rise of the middle class, televisions, rock and roll, the start of the civil rights movement, the federal highway system, and the early part of the Cold War.
