Students will work in groups to compile information on the Roaring Twenties in the form of a party. Each student will turn in his/her own information sheet. The team will work together to create a poster which will be presented to a committee of decade experts.
This lesson was created in conjunction with a unit on modernism, The Great Gatsby, and the American dream. This lesson will allow students to explore the 1920's individually and in groups instead of hearing a lecture on the topic.
