People where questioning about the scope trial. Most people where angry about it. The title is just a catch to the public. it cought the peoples eye because this was a big issue for education in schools.
This has been the summer of "intelligent design." In August, President Bush endorsed this revamped version of creationism, and this week a Pew Forum poll found that fewer than half of Americans accept Darwin's theory of evolution.
In the spring of 1925 Scope just completed his first year as a science teacher in Dayton. He planned to go back to Kentucky for the summer but got distracted by a young lady. he decided to stay for another week and this decission that he made made a drmatic change in his life. Soon after this the Scopes Trial soon became the trial of the country.
Scopes full named is John Thomas Scope. In 1925 he was arrested for violating an act of the state legislature which prohibited the teaching of evolution. After going through this trial Scopes was found guilty and was fined $100. Over 100 journalist arrived for this trial. This was the first trial in American history to be broadcast to the nation. 3 school boys testified against Scopes.
The Dust Bowl, or the Dirty Thirties, was a period of severe dust storms causing major ecological and agricultural damage to American and Canadianprairie lands in the 1930s, particularly in 1934 and 1936. The phenomenon was caused by severe drought combined with farming methods that did not include crop rotation, fallow fields, cover crops, soil terracing and wind-breaking trees to prevent wind erosion. Extensive deep plowing of the virgin topsoil of the Great Plains in the preceding decade had displaced the natural deep-rooted grasses that normally kept the soil in place and trapped moisture even during periods of drought and high winds. Rapid mechanization of farm implements, especially small gasoline tractors and widespread use of the harvester-combine were significant in the decisions to convert grassland (much of which received no more than 10 inches (250 mm) of precipitation per year) to cultivated cropland.
During the drought of the 1930s, without natural anchors to keep the soil in place, it dried, turned to dust, and blew away with the prevailing winds. At times, the clouds blackened the sky, reaching all the way to East Coast cities such as New York and Washington, D.C. Much of the soil ended up deposited in the Atlantic Ocean, carried by prevailing winds. These immense dust storms—given names such as "black blizzards" and "black rollers"—often reduced visibility to a few feet (a meter) or less. The Dust Bowl affected 100,000,000 acres (400,000 km2), centered on the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma, and adjacent parts of New Mexico, Colorado, and Kansas.
Millions of acres of farmland were damaged, and hundreds of thousands of people were forced to leave their homes; many of these families (often known as "Okies", since so many came from Oklahoma) migrated to California and other states, where they found economic conditions little better during the Great Depression than those they had left. Owning no land, many became migrant workers who traveled from farm to farm to pick fruit and other crops at starvation wages. Author John Steinbeck later wrote The Grapes of Wrath, which won the Pulitzer Prize, and Of Mice and Men, about such people.
There were so many changes made in the 1920's, back then cars were just starting to get made and sold but not to many people could get them because it was no need for them. most people walked to were they needed to go. Leisure time was needed so thats what the people got. In order to be successfull selling cars they had to make a way for more people would need them for different things they wanted to do. Electricity products such as irons, vacums and even washing machines was a big thing for women, it was a much faster way for wives to get their house duties done. Advertising was also starting to get popular because Radios were just now coming out and people started to broadcast events.
In todays life many people use things producsts for there everyday lifed even to make money.Most people today travel from place to place just to make something out of themselfs. Imagine walking from KC to Mo it would take a long time. If we didnt have radios alot of things wouldnt be heared nor said. If we didnt have leisure time people would always have to go to work and would never have time to relax and spend family time.
This document is a newspaper over debate. They have evolution in there text books. The teachers are suppose to skip over the topic and move on to the next. People had such a big issue with this because they didnt want there kids to be told what to believe in. Laws started being passed in 1976 and then the lawss re-acted in 1990.
Till this day many people still talk about the scope trial and it still comes up in today in schools. many people dont want certain things tought to there children because they dont want them to tell them what to believe and and what not to believe in.
The scopes trial went all the way around the country. The scope trial is such a big issue becaused it has to do something with the belief of religion. Most of the people that had kids in school did not want evolution going on in the class room. it is a peosons choice to believe in what they want.
The scopes trial went on in 1925. John Scope was a high school Biology teacher in Tennenssee who was accused of violating Tennenssee's Butler Act. This made it unlawfull to teach evolution in any state funded school.
