The USA 1919−1941
Even though the USA had entered WW1 and had subsequently involved itself in the affairs of post war Europe, American influence across the world really started to be felt for the first time during our period of study. The 'roaring twenties' conjure up images of wealth, parties, music, gangsters, cars and an emerging Hollywood. The cultural influence of the US was starting to spread. They say that if America sneezes the rest of the world catches a cold. No kidding! The 1930's Wall Street crash and subsequent depression reverberated around the world and still does. Our series has been written by Briton, Dr David Perkins, and American historian, Jakub Gaweda.

Schools and students are loving Audiopi
Audiopi has been very useful and I am singing your praises. Our students achieved 93% grades 4-9 at literature - and the podcasts really helped our pupils to go into the exams feeling confident about the texts.Also, the podcasts are very engaging and particularly useful for helping pupils who struggle with reading chunks of text, such as those with dyslexia
Antonia ParrisEnglish Teacher, St Aidans Harrogate
I like the way I can listen to a debate on the way home from school; I don’t have to be in a classroom or at a desk!

“Amazingly helpful. I’m a Year 10 student who has had this bought for me, it is very helpful and has shown me more POV’s on the poems. 10/10 would recommend.
