Scenario — You’d Like to Live
H. G. Wells had an exciting concept with
his time machine. Have you ever thought about life in the
past? Now’s your chance to find an answer to the question,
“If I couldn’t live now, when would I like to
have lived?” To be sure that you’d be happy
during the time you choose, you’re going to have to
find out a little about what happened during the period
politically, economically, socially and scientifically.
Because it would take too much time to
study each decade completely, each group will study one
area and present its findings to the class. The presentation
can be in the format of PowerPoint, a skit, a TV news report,
a commercial or public service announcement, a photo essay,
a newspaper, a song, a poster or any other approach that
your teacher approves. Use the template to assist you in
your search for information.
After you have heard all of the group
presentations, write a report that explains in which decade
you would most like to have lived.
