A quick word about my teaching style so that you know what you are getting into. I have worked at several schools in the past where I did not have the ability to check out books to students because of short supply. Because of this, I created materials in which I wouldn't need my students to have a textbook to be prepared for any tests or quizzes that they received. The power points that I created are quite extensive and include guided notes and lots of video that go along with them. The students do not write down every word from the presentation and can focus on listening and learning the material from the lecture. Additional items that I have posted can be used for notebook check assignments which I usually have whenever I get to the end of a unit or homework assignments.
This bundle, which was created for a U.S. history or U.S. history honors class, includes the following:
- A 126 slide presentation that covers the major points of the Great Depression and New Deal. I have also included an extensive amount of pictures and video clips related to the decade that I have edited together. These are great visual examples that go along with the material and you can pick and choose what you like.
- Three days of guided notes that go along with the presentation. Each day of notes has questions at the end which I use as a notebook check assignment at the end of the unit. The notes are broken up as follows:
Day 1 - Down Goes the Economy!
- The causes of the Great Depression and how it nearly crippled the American economy. The notes end with the election of President Roosevelt
Day 2 - The New Deal
- Major programs of the New Deal under FDR and the actions taken by the government to revive the American economy. This also covers the building of the Hoover Dam.
Day 3 - Discrimination, opportunities, and 1930's culture
- This covers topics such as segregation, Marian Anderson, Francis Marion, movies, and 1930s art and culture
In addition to the notes you will also get these documents which can be used for assignments, notebook checks, or assessments
- The Stock Market Crash of 1929 reading/questions
- New Deal Alphabet Soup assignment
- Great Depression and New Deal quiz (key included)
- Stock Market simulation --do at the beginning of the 1920s unit and sell at the end of the 1930s to show how much you can make or lose in the stock market. I give my students $10,000 in imaginary money to invest. We check back at the end of the unit (usually a couple of weeks) to see who made the most amount of money.
