The Great War through the Present, Modern History through Books and Film
10th Grade Modern US History
Goals for this course:
To have not only an understanding of the history of the time periods under study but through books and film, to get a feel for the mind sets, attitudes, fears, joys and concerns of daily life as well as certain specific events. Not only that it was experienced but how it felt to be alive during the time studied. So while some of these movies may not be historically accurate per se, I have chosen them because they represent how people felt, dressed, spoke and behaved etc.
