Teacher Introduction

By ShaKylan Cunningham

This webquest is designed for students to explore different decades through history.

I think it is important for students to see how America was in different decades in order to fully understand where we have came from. There has been strides that this country has taken from decade to decade and each decade is important of our nation's history. This impacted my choice to choose decades for my students to learn.

Students will spend:

1. 2-3 days working through the WebQuest

2. 1 class period completing their Pros and Cons

3. 1 class period presenting the decades they chose and the Pros and Cons for each.

After the presentations:

Have a discussion about each decade and what the class learned from each.

*I recommend teaching the decades before this assignment.*
