 Assignment

Roaring 1920’s Final Project

 

You will have three options for what you would like to submit as your final project for the Roaring Twenties. You may either submit a silent film, “talky” (radio) show, or a four-page magazine. You may work in groups of no more than three for either the silent film or radio projects. The magazine is a solo project ONLY! Below are the requirements for each piece.

 

Silent Film

For this project you may produce a 2-3 minute skit about anything pertaining to the Roaring Twenties. For example, you may create an advertisement for a 1920’s product, explain a new trend (flappers, nightclubs, jazz, etc.), a short skit, a news broadcast, or a combination of shows. However, keep in mind that the video will not include audio so be creative with your visuals. Keep in mind that the video must reflect the time period and information or out-of-date pictures will receive no credit. You may record or edit this piece on your own (Extra Points) or during the time allotted. Also a script must accompany the video for full credit. Below is the rubric for this assignment:

1.        The script reflects the project that is produced. (20 Points)

2.        The content of the video reflects the 1920’s. (20 Points)

3.        The information in the video is accurate. (20 Points)

4.        Props were used to help the look and feel of the time. (10 Points)
