Hiya

I am currently revamping one of our Year 8 SOLS. 2 of the enquiry questions are 'Does Darwin deserve his place on the £10 note?' and 'Why was the monkey put on trial?'. I was wondering whether anyone happened to have an introduction lesson on what America was like i the 1920s to set the scene for the class. It isnt a topic we teach so I am not overly familiar with it.

Any help will be much appreciated! Am happy to put the lessons up when I have finished planning them.

Thanks

Erin

At A2 I have students analyse the lyrics to 'Anything Goes'. They do this in order to identify trends, progress and confrontation in 1920's US society. I simply have them annotate the lyrics.

Ha - for a moment I thought you were doing a lesson on Hartlepool!

So did I! Hardly a fair trial though!
