  • What does this music bring to mind?? Make a list while listening…
introduction to the roaring twenties
Introduction to the “Roaring” Twenties
  • The 1920s are often remembered for the upbeat, boisterous characteristics that earned the decade its nickname, the “roaring twenties”
  • Indeed, as World War I ended, Americans seemed to dive into a whirlwind of changes in technology, fashion and entertainment that created a kind of modernizing “roar”.
  • Millions of Henry Ford’s Model T automobiles sold in 1925, mobilizing teenagers to “go out motoring” to experience “talkies” or speaking movies
  • Young women “flappers” went alone to movies and wore hemlines above the knee
  • Jazz musicians dizzied audiences in a cultural awakening called The Harlem Renaissance.
  • Lovers listened to songs such as “hot lips” and read books such as “Love Letters of a Portuguese Nun.”

  • Create two lists of slang words
    • First list: 5 slang words you or your friends use
    • Second list: 5 slang words parents use (or a older generation)
    • Be prepared to share list!

Why do you think groups of people (particularly young people) create slang?

What can slang teach us about a certain time period?

your job create a short skit using your slang terms
Your job….create a short skit using your slang terms…
  • You must create a skit that brings to life a scene set in the 1920s. You must incorporate all slang terms and make the audience feel as if they have stepped back in time to the Roaring Twenties.
  • Then…revise the skit and replace the 1920s slang expressions with equivalent modern-day slang.
  • You will perform both skits!!!

Left Side Continued..Step #3
  • Why do you think some slang expressions from the 1920s have endured to the present day?
  • What were the topics to which the slang expressions primarily related? What do these topics reveal about the social climate of the 1920s?
  • What do you think future generations will say about contemporary American society based on modern-day slang?
