What Would You Have Looked Like 100 Years Ago?

What Would You Have Looked Like 100 Years Ago? | Ms. Samples US History | 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.

Veterans of the Civil Rights Movement -- Literacy Tests

Veterans of the Civil Rights Movement -- Literacy Tests | Ms. Samples US History | Scoop.it

"Today, most citizens register to vote without regard to race or color by signing their name and address on something like a postcard. But it was not always so.

Prior to passage of the federal Voting Rights Act in 1965, Southern (and some Western) states maintained elaborate voter registration procedures whose primary purpose was to deny the vote to nonwhites. This process was often referred to as a "literacy test." But in fact, it was much more than just a reading test, it was an entire complex system devoted to denying African-Americans (and in some regions, Latinos and Native Americans) the right to vote.

The registration procedures, and the Registrars who enforced them, were but one part of an interlocking system of racial discrimination and oppression. The various state, county, and local police forces — all white of course — routinely intimidated and harassed Blacks who tried to register.

Could you pass a literacy test?  Why were these voting tests determined to be illegal?  Letting students see an actual test that was given in the 1960s show just how discriminatory they were.

Excellent article! Thank you for posting.
Lou Salza's curator insight, March 5, 2014 8:41 AM

These barriers were erected more recently than we like to think.  Jumping through 'hoops' like the requirement to present a picture ID at the polling place continue to limit access to the fundamental franchise of our democracy if we can still call it that. Our students need to be aware of this recent history and the current challenges to voter rights. --Lou

Heather Ramsey's curator insight, March 14, 2013 6:45 PM

World War I was called "The Great War" when it ended because it was the largest scale conflict the world had ever known at that point. Many, many lives were lost and the legacy of WWI would eventually lead to another conflict--a second world war.

 

This link will take you to a humorous page where World War I is compared to a bar fight. I do not mean to post this to downplay the importance of the war, just to show it in a different context. It also serves as an example for the way people remember events in history (in this case, this is the way the author remembers WWI).

 

FYI, I also do not condone getting into fights in bars...
