We hope that by "embodying" one of the important figures linked to Al Capone during the Roaring Twenties, you were able to deepen your understanding of this special era, from discovering the new technologies to learning more about the political climate surrounding Prohibition.
Thanks to the Internet, we can travel back in time and experience history first-hand.
But before closing the chapter on the Roaring Twenties, let's ask ourselves a few more questions.
In order to get a new perspective on your mission, ask your philosophy teacher what history is and how a person from the past can become a historical character.
Your final task is to imagine what we would call/how we would refer to today's time-period. Think about important current events and people to come to a conclusion and to support your answer.
Alas, all fun adventures must come to an end. By "being Al Capone or Eliot Ness", we hope that you've been able to delve deeper into their personalities and into the historical facts of their era.
Enriched with this newfound knowledge, we encourage you to look at history from a new perspective, a more invested and personal point of view, in order to fully understand yesterday and today. . . . . . .. . . . .. . .. .............................................................. is another story!
