IN THE AFTERMATH OF WAR

Cultural Clashes in the 1920s

Centered on primary sources, document-based activities help students identify how social and economic changes in the U.S. between WWI and WWII produced conflicts in society. Lesson plans contrast newly urban America with rural traditionalism, then look closer at three case studies: the Volstead Act (prohibition), the Sacco and Vanzetti trial (nativists vs. immigrants), and the Scopes trial (traditional vs. modern values). Documents include statistical tables, excerpts from Babbitt, advertisements, Precisionist paintings, transcripts of trial testimony, and "Fight for Americanism" by KKK leader Hiram Wesley Evans. Grades 9–12. 84 pages.
