fashion, travel, and the jazz community in the 1920’s

“Goals:
To review previous ideas from the course and connect them with your own thinking
To analyze the American Dream in different historical eras
To use evidence and reasoning to justify claims about the development of the American Dream

One of the objectives of this course has been to examine different perspectives of the American Dream. As we’ve studied different works of literature and different historical time periods, we have been able to see the dream evolve through the 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. For the final exam, you will re-examine the works of an author(s) and a time period that we have studied, and you will write a 2-3 page paper and give a ten-minute presentation. The paper will need to be 500-750 words in length with direct quotations from your author(s). In the final paragraph of the paper, include a personal response describing your American Dream.”
