The Roaring Arts
Students will research and analyze changes across the nation and in South Carolina during the 1920’s. They will then in small groups prepare exhibits for a “Roaring Arts Museum”. The museum will contain exhibits representing: prohibition; Harlem Renaissance, Southern Literary Renaissance, Musical Revolution; fashion, fads, and trends; mass media; and trouble following World War I.
The overall challenge will be to create and exhibit that is multi-media, representative of the topic, and provides its effects on life today. Each small group will be given a challenge card with guiding questions to be addressed related to their topic.
