Wall Street Crash of 1929, Mass Unemployment, Bonus Army, Hoovervilles, The Dust Bowl, Okies Move to California, Roosevelt Defeats Hoover, and the New Deal Helps Economy.
This project is a project that I use to teach an overview of the Great Depression and the New Deal. There are 8 events that students research information on. When they are finished I have them write an overall summary of the Great Depression and the New Deal. This is a very STUDENT-CENTERED activity. There is a rubric included for easy grading. You can scale the score to fit points for your class. The directions are simple, and provide for a lot of student CREATIVITY!
The eight events that students investigate are:
Wall Street Crash of 1929
The Dust Bowl
Okies Move to California
FDR Defeats Hoover
...and the New Deal Helps Economy.
