Ah, the 1980s. My years in high school and college spanned the 1980s so I have a soft spot in my heart for them. David and I will both admit to spending more time educating Caroline on the finer points of pop culture in the 1980s than probably any other decade since it probably was the most interesting decade in terms of pop culture. (No duh!)
Here are some highlights I’ve compiled to make sure she’s like totally gnarly with what happened in the years of Reagan, Michael Jackson, and bow-heads (me!) as we continue our series of Pop Culture Literacy in Your Homeschool. If you think I missed something important that fits the criteria from the original post, don’t have a cow. Just take a chill pill and feel free to leave a comment with your suggestion!
