All our videos teach through the power of story to make the history relevant and memorable. In this video-lesson, students learn about the Scopes Monkey Trial and the clashing cultures of the 1920s. Students learn how the changing times, new innovations, and a jazz culture caused cultural rifts that were best displayed in a courtroom in Tennessee during the Scopes Trial. Evolution and science against the church and fundamentalism, jazz vs Genesis, and rural vs urban all were present in the carnival atmosphere of the trial that represented so much of the changing times of the 1920s. ✅ The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still interesting.
