Focus Question #2

12 sentence paragraph
Jade Kimyanni Jennings's insight:

Paragraph #2: How did your topic effect or change society, the economy or culture of America in the 1920s? What influence did it have and for how long? (12 sentences)

 

My topic effected society by giving Americans a new way to receive information and it gave Americans a new way to spend their leisure time. My topic, which was, “Creation of sound and the radio,” changed Americans in the 1920s by acknowledging them with economic views. The first presidential debate was broadcasted on the radio. The radio played many presidential speeches, which Americans listened to. The economy changed because many radio shops started making money off of the radios. When supply was high, demand was low (Vise Versa). Most Americans in the 1920s didn’t have enough money to afford to by a radio so they found ways to make their own. The radio influenced Americans to start new jobs such as radio sellers, commercial broadcasters, or radio station workers. The radio was also handy when people would get off work and needed something to entertain them during leisure time. Many songs were played on the radio. It turned many listeners into “Jazz Lovers.” The radio still today has a large impact on Americans.
