Silken Weinberg A.P. U.S. History Mrs. Garrett April 3, 2009 1920's American History Essay The 1920's was a decade of reform in almost every aspect of society. Things were becoming modernized, and despite many objections to progression, this roaring decade served as a bridge from old to new in more ways than one (Doc. B.).

The evaluation of points lacked correct criteria. My criticism of each factor was deemed random and incoherent to an overall stand. Instead of reviewing each side effectively and comparing each factor against each other, I saw myself “bashing” sides that I did not favor, which would be an invalid comparison; even if there were valid points of comparison I moved on without expanding on these thoughts. Inferring from this, I realize that I took a non-structural and biased approach.
