The Roaring Twenties


The 1920s was an era of rapid change and clashing values. Many Americans believed society was losing its traditional values, and they took action to preserve these values. Other Americans embraced new values associated with a freer lifestyle and the pursuit of individual goals. Writers and artists pursued distinctively American themes, and the Harlem Renaissance gave African Americans new pride.


In an effort to allow you to learn more about the 1920s, you will be individually working to research a topic, and working in groups to prepare your project to share at an upcoming classroom exhibition.
