FC: The American Dream | By Joshua Ross Block 3A Mr. Stubbe 11-5-12
1: Traditional American Dream When most people picture the American Dream, they have the graven image in their mind of the small house with the white picket fence in front. This is my true definition of the American Dream.
2: Traditional American Dream 2 | The other thing that really comes to mind when thinking about the traditional American Dream is Land. Land was and is something that almost everyone dreams of owning at some point or another.
3: Traditional American Dream 3 | Another traditional thing that is commonly thought about when thinking about the American Dream is having company. Back in the the 40's and 50's, migrant farm workers were at a peak high. You would rarely ever find a pair of people working together.
4: My Personal American Dream | Ever since I was little, My American Dream consisted of owning nice things and a really big house and having a family etc. I never really knew what I wanted to do when I grew up. All I knew was that I wanted to do whatever I wanted and that no one could tell me otherwise.
5: My Personal American Dream 2 | My American Dream at the moment is to do well in both regular school and in Governor's School. This is important to me because I have to do well now in order to get where I want to be in the future.
6: My Personal American Dream 3 | In the future, my dream job is to become an opera singer. There is a back story for this, however it is very long and I'm not going to go into it right now!
7: My Personal American Dream 4 | Another thing that I wish to make happen in the future is to own a large home. I don't know where yet, but I know that I want one!
8: My Personal American Dream 5 | In the future, I also dream of having a family and growing to be old. I want to enjoy my golden years and my retirement.
9: American Dream in Literature | For this slide, I will be using the same example as everyone else! In the book Of Mice and Men, George and Lennie dream of owning a small piece of farm land that they can call their own.
