I cultural changes

I. Cultural Changes

Goal 7.04: Examine the impact of technological changes on economic, social, and cultural life in the United States.


B culture shift

B. Culture Shift

  • New technology created national trends in culture as opposed to regional ones.

    • Nationally wear the same clothes, buy the same products

    • Kodak camera – first time cameras could be owned and operated by the average person.

    • Movie camera – new invention, people started watching movies and wanting to be like movie stars.

    • Mail order catalogs – people could buy products from stores in far away cities, allowing them to keep up with the trends.


D transportation innovation

D. Transportation Innovation

  • Wright Brothers – made the first flight in Kitty Hawk, NC on December 17, 1903

    • Captured interest of public and culture, commercial travel began in 1926

  • Henry Ford– began the use of the assembly line.

    • Mass-produced cars – the Model T

    • Had employees stay in one spot while the assembly line moves up the parts.

    • Allowed him to keep his cars cheap so many people would be able to now buy a car.


Independent practice

Independent Practice

  • Imagine you operate a business and want to sell more products. Create your own mail-order catalog.

  • Your catalog should include at least two products, including a picture and a 2-3 sentence description that sells the product to the customer.

  • Use the new products that we have discussed today or other innovations we have discussed previously this unit.
