High School Instructional Performance Task Module

In this instructional module, the students will learn how to examine both literary and informational texts that reflect the politics, culture, and society of the 1920s Boom Time era. Essentially, the students will analyze literature through the lens of information obtained through a close reading of informational texts provided in the learning module - the “New Woman,” “Prohibition,” “The Jazz Age,” and “Mass Culture and Consumerism.” After analyzing the informational and literary texts (F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “Head and Shoulders” and Langston Hughes’s “Spanish Blood”), the students’ final task is to make an argument about the literary texts based on their knowledge of the era. The focus here is how the motifs heavily influenced 1920s society and ideology, as evidenced by the literature.
