The Culture of the Roaring 20's - Research & Presentation Project in eMaze

This unit connects learning with technology to Social Studies. This is perfect for technology class or for use in a Social Studies or History classroom that wants to incorporate technology with a lesson. No download is required to use eMaze (www.emaze.com) - a free product, making it easy for teachers who are not able to download software on classroom computers to still give their students a choice in learning. In this lesson, students are provided with a quick tutorial, as well as links to other resources to help them with their project. The tutorial is intended to help students get started with the program and then use the resources within the program to refine their creations. Students create a presentation about their choice of one of several topics about the culture of the Roaring 20’s after researching them. They use that information along with graphics, pictures and background to create a finished presentation that explains how their topic influenced society then and now, and also add their own opinions and insights to it. This is an excellent creative project to add to a unit on American History or the 1920’s. This project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be used with upper elementary or high school students. Files Included with this Lesson • Teacher & Student Notes and Resources • Student Project Expectations and Grading Rubric • Getting Started Tutorial for eMaze
