[The 1920s The First Modern Decade]

Professional development is important to you (and your boss). A new Social Science Symposium is now available--finally, it's not just the math teachers who have an excuse to get together and have some fun while learning about their subjects--and those who attend will receive re-licensure points (also called License Renewal Points).

The topic of the exciting symposium is the 1920s. Presenters will cover themes from across the range of social science disciplines on issues from the Roaring 20s that have incredible relevance today. Come and get insight on how the U.S. fight against alcohol during prohibition relates to contemporary anti-drug policies, what the era was like for African Americans who faced brutal discrimination including lynching, hear about the decade's most compelling trials, and glean understanding on politics and leadership from some of the leading experts in the field-including best-selling author and historian David Pietrusza, whose work includes the award-winning 1920: The Year of the Six Presidents.
