Art of Cynicism

High schoolers analyze selected pieces of art and infer how they reflect a sense of disillusionment, and/or cynicism in American society in the aftermath of the Vietnam War and Watergate scandal. Then they identify and place cultural attitudes of recent generations of Americans within a historical context. Finally, students identify how art and/or literature and films mirrors a distrust, uneasiness, or cynicism from some Americans about how they view their government and its role.
