Who shared in the US economic boom of the 1920s?

US Economic Boom posterThis lesson fits neatly into any Scheme of Work on America in the 1920’s. The lesson offers an overview of wealth, poverty and prejudice in 1920’s America by introducing students to a series of historical characters.

The main thrust of the lesson is via a scripted role play in which the teacher reads a script while selected students contribute the roles of characters from American history.

We would recommend teaching this lesson after your students are familiar with the causes of the US economic boom of the 1920s.
