review your readings for Unit 8 and read the following instructions carefully. Feel free to do research outside the course if you’d like other points of view.
(Hi, so for this unit, can you skim through Chapter 22: The New Era here: ( https://www.americanyawp.com/text/22-the-twenties/ ) to kind of get an idea of how to write the paper. ) 🙂
Then form groups that represent:
• Ellen Welles Page
• A Harlem Renaissance artist
• A female member of the KKK
All have their own opinions regarding the flapper lifestyle. Each group will answer the following questions:
How would your character describe the flapper lifestyle?
Do their opinions represent that they advocate for progressive change or the preservation of traditional American values?
To form groups, students will take the role of the male jazz artist
Be sure to put yourself in the shoes of the person you are speaking for — try to imagine how that person felt, what their ideals were, what they thought was good or right or appropriate at the time.
(Hi so for this paper, can you speak from like a 1st person point of view from the male jazz artist?)
