Our unit theme for this year is . . . Pop Culture! Why Pop Culture? Right now more than ever we want our students excited about learning, engaged in lessons and motivated to discover more about the world around them. Although the term wasn’t coined until the 80’s, by investigating pop culture throughout different time periods students will have a better understanding of our history and its impact on society. Pop Culture includes the attitudes, movies, books, art, and music of everyday people, usually younger people. Things that fascinate young people and make them stand out from their parents are the "popular culture" for each generation. When we look back at certain time periods in history, we can identify the pop culture trends that were important at the time. Get ready to step back in time as we "cut a rug", " shake our leg" and "jitterbug” through the Roaring Twenties!
