PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The collision of artistic, political, and cultural forces of our early 21st experience is easily matched with a look back at the “Roaring Twenties,” the era which inspired Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. This SmartBoard presentation (a social studies/ELA interdisciplinary experience) gives students a colorful look at the many forces which gave us the first “youth generation” in American history. Along with the better-known details (college pranks, stock market booms), many incidents in American history (the 1919 “Black Sox” scandal, Teapot Dome) are explored that directly affect the characters of the novel, and the overall themes of the novel itself. How can the 1920’s seem so boisterous and flamboyant, and at the same time, so cynical and despairing? Connections are made in this presentation, which links historical incidents to specific references and quotations from The Great Gatsby.
