Classwork: Today we finished watching a documentary about the Korean War and wrote a thesis about why it is called the Forgotten War. We started talking about the idea of conformity and how social norms were portrayed through TV in the 1950s. We watched an episode of I Love Lucy.
Homework: Watch one of the following 50s TV shows from below or access them though other streaming services. You do not have to watch an entire episode if there is a time constraint, but at least 10-15 minutes. Be prepared to discuss how it compares to I Love Lucy, the ideas of conformity and TV in today's society.
