Do you want an innovative way to have students learn about the Great Depression and the New Deal? Would you also like to incorporate writing skills and creativity into the process? If so, then this assignment is perfect for you! Students will create a magazine in groups that will take a hard look at everything the Great Depression entails. There are many article ideas for students from investigative reports to movie and book reviews. I have given this assignment to my American History classes for a couple years now, and I am getting some exceptional work in return. I have attached the file as a Word document, so you can change the topics or directions as you see fit. I have found that students are remembering the information about the Great Depression and New Deal with this project and it definitely gives them much responsibility in the creation of the magazine. I hope you enjoy!
