Research your cultural myth in your decade.  Ask the questions tied to your myth.  Seek answers from primary and secondary sources. Create note cards documenting your findings.  These note cards must be created in Noodletools (Direct Quotes & Paraphrases).  To guide your research consider:  FOUR note cards based on each of your six best sources - note cards demonstrate the depth and quality of the source (three from each side of the argument) and ONE note card for your Visual Source.

With your specific focus, also consider the following questions as you create notecards:

  • Who is succeeding in contemporary American society and why?  What role does access to education, birth right, government policies, discrimination… play in who has opportunity.

  • What obstacles continue to hinder racial equality?  What advances are breaking down barriers to equality?  

  • Where does the United States overtly and covertly involve itself in world affairs?  What motivates the United States to take action (or opt for inaction)?

  • What obstacles continue to hinder gender equality?  What advances are breaking down barriers to equality?

We have seen how John Ford's film adaptation has rearranged and condensed the story. Go through the same process of prediction in relation to John Ford's film. Use the same guiding questions above and write down how you think Ford will end his film?

The Happy Housewife: Not An Oxymoron

Clip from The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit 

Universally acclaimed when first published in 1955, The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit captured the mood of a generation. Its title — like Catch-22 and Fahrenheit 451 — has become a part of America's cultural vocabulary. Tom Rath doesn't want anything extraordinary out of life: just a decent home, enough money to support his family, and a career that won't crush his spirit. After returning from World War II, he takes a PR job at a television network. It is inane, dehumanizing work. But when a series of personal crises force him to reexamine his priorities — and take responsibility for his past — he is finally moved to carve out an identity for himself. This is Sloan Wilson's searing indictment of a society that had just begun to lose touch with its citizens. The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit is a classic of American literature and the basis of the award-winning film starring Gregory Peck. "A consequential novel." — Saturday Review
