This is the entire unit covering the 1920s Jazz Age/Roaring Twenties from Reading Through History. An enormous project, several months was spent researching and composing 38 lessons to cover the major events, figures, and policies of the era. 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. The package includes 159 pages of student activities.
