The Roaring Twentiesb by MsG77


									The Roaring Twenties!
The Process:
     1.   Choose one of the following aspects of culture to explore: Fashion, Cars, Sports, Entertainment, Women, Technology,
          or Crime
     2.   Read about your topic. Become as informed as possible about that particular segment of culture. VERY
          IMPORTANT: Sites have both pictures and text. It is IMPORTANT that you look at the pretty pictures AND READ!
     3.   Consider the themes, achievements, and important people that shape your topic.
     4.   Products – choose one and create it in your Google Docs acct:
               Magazine cover and introduction from the editor that presents the theme of the magazine [drawing or
               Four “powerpoint” slides (info on each, graphics on at least two, sources in the notes section) [presentation]
               The script for a three to four minute radio broadcast (could possibly be recorded for XC) [document]
