The Roaring 20s and the Great Depression were transformational times in the United States, but there were also full of contradictions. There was optimism, prosperity, and the spread of consumerism.

Paragraph 3: What caused this contradiction to occur?
Paragraph 4: Thinking about society today, does this contradiction continue? Why/why not?
Paragraph 5: Conclusion (highlight and reinforce main ideas discussed)
