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 in the 1950s. We watched a PSA epsidoe titled 'A date with your Family' and discussed gender and social roles of the 50s. We also watched an episode of I Love Lucy. I also reviewed the expectations and deadlines of the Junior Project.
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.
