AL CAPONE QUIT MIDDLE SCHOOL IN SIXTH GRADE TO BECOME A GANGSTER. DURING THE TIME OF PROHIBITION , HE WAS A BOOTLEGGER FOR THE SPEAKEASIES. CAPONE WENT TO PRISON SEVERAL TIMES, BUT WAS NOT CONVICTED THERE, UNTIL SEVERAL YEARS LATER WHEN HE WAS ARRESTED FOR TAX EVASION, AND WAS SENT TO ALCATRAZ AND COOK JAILS. I ENJOYED THE NEWSREEL FROM THE DAY AL CAPONE WAS SENT TO ALCATRAZ ISLAND.

DANCES OF THE 1920'S WERE FAST PACED AND ENERGETIC. THE WALTZ , TANGO, AND SQUARE DANCES (ENTERTAINMENT) WERE A WAY TO TAKE A PERSON'S MIND OFF OF THE WAR. IN DANCE MARATHONS, EVERYBODY DANCED TOGETHER DOWN THE STREETS. MANY TYPES OF DANCES WERE CREATED IN THE 1920s. SOME LIKE BALLET ARE STILL DANCED TODAY. THE ANIMATED GRAPHICS WERE VERY GOOD.

FASHION WAS CREATED ANEW SO THAT OLD STYLES WOULD NOT REMIND PEOPLE OF THE WAR AND LOST LOVED ONES. THIS IMPACTED US TODAY, BECAUSE IF FASHION HAD NOT CHANGED THEN , WE MIGHT STILL BE WEARING WHAT OUR PARENTS WORE BACK THEN, AND FASHION WOULD HAVE CHANGED SLOWER. I REALLY ENJOYED THE IMAGES OF THE CLOTHES.

Chance Martin - Babe Ruth

Kyle Greenhut - Louis Armstrong

Cole Murphy - Prohibition

Allie O'Connell - Bessie Smith

BESSIE SMITH WAS A FAMOUS BLUES AUTHOR AND MUSICIAN. MANY PEOPLE RELATED TO HER BECAUSE SHE WAS VERY PERSONABLE. THE COLOR SCHEME AND DESIGN OF THE GLOGSTER WAS GREAT.

SCOTT JOPLIN WAS A FAMOUS MUSICAL COMPOSER AND PIANIST, AND HE ALSO WROTE A BOOK. JOPLIN AFFECTED THE FUTURE BY CREATING THE PIECES NAMED THE ENTERTAINER AND THE MAPLE LEAF RAG. IN FACT, IN A MOVIE NAMED THE STING, ONLY HIS MUSIC WAS USED. THE AUDIO WAS INTERESTING.

LOUIS ARMSTRONG WAS A FAMOUS JAZZ MUSICIAN WHO WAS BORN AND RAISED IN LOUISANA. HE GREW UP IN POVERTY AND DID SNEAKY THINGS AS A CHILD . A JUVENILE DELINQUENT CENTER IS WHERE HE LEARNED TO PLAY THE CORNET AND COMPOSED MANY FAMOUS PIECES LIKE WHEN THE SAINTS COME MARCHING IN, AND WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD. THE AUDIO WAS THE BEST PART OF THE PRESENTATION.

Sig Sandberg - Federal Bureau of Investigation

ELLA FITZGERALD HAD A VERY TOUGH CHILDHOOD AS GREW UP IN POVERTY. IN HER FREE TIME SHE WROTE JAZZ . BY AGE 17 SHE WAS A PERFORMER. HER SONG, A TISKET A TASKET, GOT HER ON THE ROAD TO SUCCESS. SHE WAS REFERRED TO THE FIRST LADY OF SONG. FITZGERALD WORKED ON AND RECORDED YOU CANNOT TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME, WITH LOUIS ARMSTRONG. HER SONGS ARE LISTENED TO AND STILL LOVED TODAY. SHE HAS INSPIRED MANY YOUNG ARTISTS TOO. THE GLOGSTER BACKGROUND WAS CREATIVE.

ROBERT FROST WAS A FAMOUS AUTHOR IN THE 1920s. BOTH OF HIS PARENT'S PROFESSIONS DEALT WITH LITERATURE. HIS MOM WAS A TEACHER AND HIS DAD WAS A JOURNALIST. FROST'S MOST FAMOUS POEM IS THE ROAD NOT TAKEN. HIS POEMS ARE STILL READ AND LOVED TODAY AND HE HAS INSPIRED MANY WRITERS AND READERS. THE FRAMES AND DESIGN (LAYOUT) OF THIS GLOGSTER WERE IMPRESSIVE.

HENRY FORD WAS BORN IN JULY 1863, AND GREW UP ON A FARM. HE INVENTED THE MODEL T OR TIN LIZZIE AND THE ASSEMBLY LINE. BY 1919, HALF OF THE CARS IN AMERICA WERE MOTEL Ts. HIS INVENTIONS HELPED OTHER INDUSTRIES LIKE, RUBBER, GLASS, STELL ETC. TO GROW. THE CAR AFFECTS THE WAY WE LIVE TODAY IN MANY WAYS. THE YOU TUBE VIDEO WAS INCREDIBLY CREATIVE.

GEORGE HERMAN RUTH WAS A BASEBALL PLAYER WHO PLAYED FOR THE RED SOX, THE BRAVES, AND THE YANKEES. HE WAS A DIFFICULT CHILD, AND WAS SENT TO A SPECIAL SCHOOL, WHERE HE LEARNED BASEBAL,L AND LATER BROKE MANY RECORDS. HE CHANGED THE FUTURE, OF BASEBALL: MANY PLAYERS HAVE TRIED TO BREAK HIS RECORDS, AND THEY CELEBRATE BABE RUTH DAY AT STADIUMS ALL OVER THE U.S. THE AUDIO WAS EXCELLENT.

Jack Dailey - Ku Klux Klan

GANGSTERS WERE THE FIRST ORGANIZED AND ARMED CRIME GROUP. THEY WOULD GET TOGETHER AND PLAN HOW THEY WOULD ROB A MARKET OR A BANK.. THEY INVENTED UNIQUE WEAPONS LIKE SPECIAL GUNS AND THE BRASS KNUCKLE. AL CAPONE WAS A FAMOUS GANGSTER. THE GRAPHICS WERE WELL DONE, AND THE VIDEO WAS INTERESTING TO WATCH.

PABLO PICASSO WAS AN ARTIST AND THE FOUNDER OF CUBISM. HE IMPACTED CURRENT SOCIETY AS MANY OF HIS PAINTINGS ARE STILL DISPLAYED AND COVETED TODAY. CHARLES SHEELER ALSO HAD ARTISTIC IMPACT. HE DID NOT FIND BEAUTY IN NATURE; HE FOUND IT IN INDUSTRY. SHEELER BECAME PART OF THE PRECISIONISTS ACT. I REALLY ENJOYED THE PAINTER'S VIDEO.

THE 18TH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION PROHIBITEDOF THE SALE AND THE CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL. MANY CHURCHES HELD RALLIES AGAINST ALCOHOL. MOONSHINES, BOOTLEGGERS, AND SPEAKEASIES WERE COMMON IN THE 1920s. PROHIBITITION CAUSED CRIME TO INCREASE BACK THEN AND SO THE GOVERNMENT LEARNED FROM THAT AND WOULD NEVER DO IT AGAIN. THIS PRESENTATION INSPIRED A 10 MINUTE DISCUSSION THAT WAS VERY INTERESTING.

THE KU KLUX KLAN WAS A TERRORIST GROUP WHO DISCRIMINATED AGAINST ANYONE WHO WAS NOT WHITE OR CHRISTIAN. THEY ARE STILL ALIVE TODAY. THEY BURNED LARGE CROSSES TO UNITE WITH GOD. IT BEGAN TO KEEP THE AFRICAN-AMERICANS FROM VOTING. iT STARTED IN THE SOUTH, AND MOVED TO THE NORTH. I LEARNED SOME THINGS ABOUT THE KKK THAT I DID NOT KNOW.

HERBERT HOOVER WAS ONE OF THE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTS IN THE 1920'S. HE WAS BORN ON AUGUST 10, 1874, IN WEST BRANCH, IOWA AND GREW UP AS A QUAKER. HOOVER WAS ENROLLED AT STANFORD UNIVERSITY IN CALIFORNIA, AND HE GRADUATED WITH A DEGREE IN GEOLOGY. HE RAN AGAIN IN 1932, BUT WAS DEFEATED BY FRANKIN ROOSEVELT. HOOVER RETIRED TO PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA. I LEARNED SOME FACTS ABOUT HERBERT HOOVER THAT I DID NOT KNOW BEFORE.

THE TRAFFIC LIGHT AND THE LIE DETECTOR WERE BOTH INVENTED IN THE 1920'S. LIE DETECTORS MESSURED PULSE., AND COULD TELL IF A PERSON WAS NOT TELLING THE TRUTH. THE OLD TRAFFIC LIGHTS WERE MORE COMPLEX THAN MODERN ONES AS THE ROTATED, HAD ARMS, AND DIRECTED WALKING TRAFFIC. IT WAS INTERESTING TO SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRAFFIC LIGHTS THEN AND NOW.

Olivia Gulian - Herbert Hoover

THE ROCKET WAS INVENTED BY ROBERT GODDARD. THE FIRST ONE ONLY FLEW 184 FEET, AS ITS FUEL SOURCE WAS OXYGEN AND LIQUID FUEL PROPULSION. IT WAS USED IN WAR. LIE DETECTORS WERE INVENTED IN 1920. THEY DETECTED A PERSON'S PULSE AND IT COULD BE READ ON A COMPUTER SCREEN. POLICE USED IT TO TELL IF PEOPLE WERE LYING ABOUT A CRIME. THE PRESENTATION WAS INTERESTING.

LANGSTON HUGHES WAS AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN POET WHO CONTRIBUTED SO MUCH TO LITERATURE AND THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN CULTURE IN THE 1920s. HIS WRITINGS REFLECTED THE LIVES, TIMES, FEELINGS, AND RHYTHMS OF AFRICAN AMERICANS AND THEIR MUSIC. HE WROTE FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS, AND ENCOURAGED EVERYONE TO READ. THE BEST PART OF DOING THIS PROJECT BESIDES LEARNING ABOUT LANGSTON HUGHES.WAS LEARNING HOW TO CREATE A GLOGSTER AND HOW TO MAKE LINKS THAT INCLUDED POEMS AND VIDEOS. PEOPLE STILL LOVE HIS POETRY TODAY.

THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION WAS CREATED IN THE 1920s TO PREVENT CRIME AND GANGSTERISM. IT WAS FOUNDED BY CHARLES BONAPARTE. FBI PRACTICE CENTERS WERE CREATED IN CHICAGO, NEW YORK, AND WASHINGTON D.C. THEIR ENEMIES WERE AL CAPONE AND THE KU KLUX KLAN. I LEARNED A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THE FBI IN THIS PRESENTATION.

Cara Wagner - Duke Ellington

DUKE ELLINGTON WAS A FAMOUS MUSICAL ARTIST AND A GIFTED PIANO PLAYER. ALTHOUGH HIS REAL NAME WAS EDWARD, A HIGH SCHOOL FRIEND NICKNAMED HIM "DUKE." ELLINGTON SETTLED IN HARLEM, AND HE AND HIS BAND THE WASHINGTONIANS BECAME FAMOUS FROM PLAYING IN LOCAL NIGHTCLUBS. HE WROTE OVER 2000 COMPOSITIONS, CHANGED DAILY MUSIC, AND THE STYLE OF JAZZ. i WOULD LIKE TO LISTEN TO SOME OF HIS MUSIC SOMETIME.
