What Would You Have Looked Like 100 Years Ago?

What Would You Have Looked Like 100 Years Ago? | Instruction ideas | Scoop.it
"From the scrunchies and jean jackets that dominated the 1980s to the plaid shirts and heavy boots that defined 1990s grunge, everyone has their favorite teenage fashion trend. But what would we have worn if we were flower children of the 1970s or flappers of the 1920s? Ohio State University student Annalisa Hartlaub was able to paint a picture by depicting each decade's quintessential mainstream and counterculture looks. Using herself as a model and tinting each picture to realistically reflect the technology of the decade, Hartlaub's "Counter // Culture" photo project catalogs nearly 100 years of fashion history from 1920 through today."

Here is a great photo study to use when teaching counterculture. Students often have difficulty seeing persons in other eras as anything but "foreign". This photo study may also help students convey a sense of familiarity across time and social groups.

A/Prof Jon Willis's curator insight, June 16, 2014 7:12 PM

Although this is a relatively trivial example, the idea of a Bingo approach to skills building is an interesting one - at UQ we're using a passport as part of engagement processes with Aboriginal school students visiting the university. For every activity they participate in, there is a unique stamp for their passport. The bingo card idea is similar so that across a semester, students fill up their bingo card with activities that build their skills in a range of domains, or across a range of technologies or tools.
