History Essay: How far were the 1920’s a won decade?

 This is an Essay our history teacher Lenny usked us to do. 

 

how far were the 1920’s a won decade?

 

In this essay I am going to analyse that the 1920’s were partly a won decade but partly not, possitive a negative things took place in this decade.

 

On the one hand, there were plenty of possitive aspects that took place in the USA, such as the boom; wich led to new industries, electricity, new products, the republican policies (low taxation, tariffs, trusts, laissez-faire), the new track industry and industrialization; such as the state of mind, people after WW1 had a diferent view of life, they wanted to spend all their money in new products, in luxury things, in entreteinment, so that they could enjoy as much as they could their life; and womens, who in the 1920’s earned more rights, they could vote, they could smoke and drink in public, they could use less clothing and they could go out without a chaperon.
Nevertheless, there were also negative things taking place in the USA. Farmers were having a tought time, because of overproduction. Prohibition in the USA led to massive corruption, to gangsters, to the mafia; although the idea of prohibitting alcohol was good, the result or the consecuences were bad. Intolerance was also negative, people treated the immigrants in a very bad way, americans thought of themeselvs as superior, and the KKK, wich killed black people with no logical reason.

 

On the other hand, the league of nations achieved most of it’s goals, such as, the Upper Silesia conflict, the Aaland Islands conflict, the Corfu and the Bulgaria conflict, in all of this, war was avoided. Also there were the succesful comities, refugees, slavery, working condirions, helth and transport.
Although most of the conflicts were solved, two weren’t. The conflict in Vilna, and The Geneva Protocol, wich said that if two countries of the league were argueing about something, the league would interfeer and solv the problem, this didn’t work because one country didn’t sign.

 

In conclusion, the 1920’s were a half won decade, because lots of possitive things happened, but lots of bad, negative too.

 

Composed Upon Westminster Bridge

This are some questions we answer about the poem we read Composed Upon Westminster Bridge. My group was: Luna and Tomas.

1. Would you guess that the speaker is native or foreign to the city? why?

We think he is foreign to the city because it`s the first time he passes by at dawn and he really enjoys it, he thinks is very beautiful.

2. Do you think that the speaker is aware that he is using exaggeration in calling the vision the most beautiful that earth has to offer?

Yes, we think he sees London as a very beautiful country and he uses hyper bowl for everyone to understand and share his thoughts about the view from the bridge.

3. How do the poem`s images juxtapose the city with the countryside? Where can you tell these two regions apart?

In the beginning the city and country are apart “earth has nothing to show more fair” but at the end they juxtapose “open unto the fields, and to the sky”.

Defend this statement:

The city`s freshness is more beautiful than the freshness of the countryside because it runs counter to expectation. The element of surprise accounts for the speaker`s enthusiasm.

The statement is right because you know what the atmosphere of the country is like but you don`t see everyday a countryside view in a city so it surprises you that accounts to the writer`s exaggeration.

This are Bauti, Joaco, Nico and Gonzalo`s answers.

 

Diary Entry

This is a diary entry I made for my class with Daniela Barra, hope you like it.

March 12th

I finally started senior 2. I didn´t want to finish senior one, but now that it´s over I´m looking forward to having a great senior 2. I´m very excited about this year, it´s not very different from last year but I´m really anxious about getting to know all the new teachers.

As we grow up the level of difficulty grows too, we have more homework, topics are harder, more exams, etc. But that does´t bother me much because I pay attention in class and that helps me a lot.

I hope this year is great, I hope I can get to know all the teachers and study and understand everything for me to pass all the subjects as last year.
