English teacher Mr. Michael Moore’s American Literature classes are making the final arrangements for their Roaring ’20s project.

“We have to pretend that we are creating a magazine for a certain topic like fashion, entertainment, etc., during the 1920’s and relate it to The Great Gatsby,” junior Felicia Richardson said.

Students have been working in groups of three and four to write articles about a chosen event from the 1920’s to create an electronic publication

“Overall, I think this project is very creative and unique, especially because I am a fashion student. This project informs me about how fashion was during the 20’s,” junior Amber Samiano said.

Seven years ago, Moore and his wife designed this project to compliment the study of “The Great Gatsby” and to make additional connections to events in U.S. history that signified great social, cultural, and technological change.

“I see it as a cool way for students to learn what they want within a given time period of U.S. History and also teach me about some things I may not know as well,” Moore said.
