Wednesday: Social Change in the Early Twentieth Century
The following activities will help you to prepare for the lecture by encouraging you to predict some of the content and learn the meaning of some of the key vocabulary. Don’t worry if you find it difficult to answer the prediction questions, just thinking about the questions will help you to follow the lecture.
Once you have finished the materials, return to the main lecture page and watch the lecture.
The title of this lecture is ‘Social Change in the 20th Century’. What kind of social changes do you think took place in the UK during this time?
Think of social changes that happened in Japan between 1900-1950; perhaps there will be some similarities.
We will be looking at two kinds of measurement; feet and metres.
There are approximately 3.3 feet in one metre (1 foot = about 30cm).
Read the note taking template. This gives you an idea of the structure of the lecture and some of the main ideas it looks at.
Now look at the 3 stills taken from the lecture on the following slides. Try to predict which is taken from:
- the Edwardian era (1900-1910)
- the 1920s
- the 1940s.
You’ll find the answers in the lecture.
Now you can go back to the lecture page and watch the lecture. Don't forget to download and complete the note-taking template!
