Explain that today we’ll be working together to explore some of the key 1920’s social changes and sharing our findings with each other. Begin by showing an image of a group of women from a current advertisement. Show image on overhead. Ask students to describe what they see. "Based on this description, what do you think women might be doing or thinking? How might this image represent the current lifestyle of today’s modern woman?" Share an image from the 1920’s on the overhead. Ask students to describe what they see. "Based on this description, what do you think these women might be doing or thinking? How might this image represent the lifestyle of a woman during the 1920’s? How might this image represent the lifestyle/expectations of a 1920’s woman? What are the differences between being a woman in the 1920’s and today?"
Transition: "Today we're going to work together to explore some of the key 1920's social changes and create a dynamic presentation to share our findings with each other. One of the ways we'll share our work is by creating staged frozen images of the time period."
Describe: What steps did you take to create your presentations?
Analyze: Which of the changes presented created positive effects and for whom? Which of the changes created negative effects and for whom? What are the biggest differences between the 1920's and the modern day?
Relate: How did the social changes of the 1920's bring us closer to our contemporary society?
