Upper School students in Humanities courses are learning about the history of the Roaring 20s - including the Great Gatsby, taught by Mrs. Hosmer, and the AP U.S. History (APUSH) curriculum, taught by Ms. Worthy. To reinforce the content learned, students participated in a fun assignment that combines historical research and technology skills.
The Assignment: America in the 1920s Photobomb Project
- Choose a famous image, political cartoon, or painting from the 1920s in America.
- Photobomb it by superimposing a photo of you onto the scene as if you were experiencing it.
- Research the selected image and the events surrounding its historical context and significance.
- Prepare a minimum two-paragraph essay of what is going on in the image written as a first-hand eyewitness account of history.
- The greater the detail, accuracy, and immersion into the scene with rich detail translates to a higher score.
