The 1920's were the topic of conversation today. We started class by using your textbook notes to complete a graphic organizer of 6 different lenses through which the events and developments of the 1920's may be viewed. We followed this by SKIPPING out DocBlock for the day! :) We ended the day by examining the 1920's through one last lens: the conflict between tradition and modernity. We did this by firct analyzing some images of women from 1910 and comparing them to images from the 1920's. We then looked at five other examples of the conflict in stations about Prohibition, Mexican American issues, the Palmer Raids, the Chicago Race Riots, and the Scopes trial.
Chapter 25 is due tomorrow, so be sure you have that ready to go as we move on to talking about the beginnings of the Great Depression.
