TV Show Assignment Introduction: In order to interpret the past historians examine popular culture. Music, TV shows, and art can tell us a lot about the times. Instructions: Working in groups of two, you should complete both parts of the following assignment: 1) create a TV show that you feel is indicative of our times. You will need to describe the plot, the setting, the main characters (and their motivations), and potential conflicts. 2) Then, you need to describe what your show tells us about the times. In other words, what will historians say about our culture based on your show?
