How Did the Radio Change America?
Haas, Mary E.
In these lessons students gather information from pictures and by listening to recordings from radio shows of the 1930s and 1940s. Students predict how radio changed people's behaviors and survey older adults about their radio listening habits. Students conclude that radio had a big impact on the lives of people in the past and that it lay the groundwork for television. Students also examine the role of radio today with its low cost and small size that contribute to its modern-day use. The sample questions for students to use in the survey are included in the paper along with procedures and suggestions for evaluation. (EH)
