• Unit 7: The Great Depression
    This Unit will begin immediately after the Stock Market crash of 1929.  Students will look at the impact the Great Depression had on the economy as well as at a personal level for the people.  We will look at how President Hoover and his administration tried to handle the situation and the reaction of the people.  From there we will look at the election of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his promise of a New Deal.  Several of his New Deal programs will be examined including the CCC, WPA, PWA, NRA, AAA, NYA and the TVA just to name a few.  Students will also look at popular culture of the 1930's and the importance of movies and music.  We will end the unit looking at the events taking place in Europe and Asia in the 1930's and how they led to the outbreak of war.
