The Golden Age of Television

Students become acquainted with the genres and types of television shows of the 1950s. They compare these shows with current television offerings. Students are asked what shows they watch regularly. They work in pairs and select one of the shows. Students write a short short description of the television show, paying attention to the stars, the intended audience, and the genre into which it fits.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
