Could someone please help me with this? There is three parts to this qiuestion. I need to list three things about each topic; the social, political and economic.
The question is this: Social, political and economic changes and advances that emerged during the Roaring Twenties? Here is what I have for Social, 1. changing roles for women, 2.growing urbanization and 3. cultural and religious conflict. Political, 1.Prohibition, 2.changes in presidency and 3. Harlem Renaissance. Economic, 1. the automible, 2.education and 3. radio
Is this right? I'm a little confused.
Thanks for your help.
You are definitely on the right track. :-)
This all looks good -- but I'm not sure about education as an economic advance. How about the almost continuous rise in stock prices?
The reason I listed education as an economic change or advance was because as the industry grew so did the earnings of American workers also rose. More families could afford to send their children to school instead of sending them to textile mills and other factories. As a result high school and college enrollment increased.
That's true. I also think that the number of women attending college increased -- although I don't have the percentages. Good reasoning.
